A big thank you to all seafarers of Stolt Tankers!
A big thank you to all seafarers @ Stolt Tankers!
Amongst others, thanks to your efforts and intrinsic drive we have sampled over 500 flasks of air in the North Atlantic in the past 6 months. Launching one of the biggest sampling campaigns ever!
And we’re just getting started…
Xploration Seafarer & Scientists unleashes the collective potential of our seafarers and scientists for global impact.
The atmosphere and it’s natural sinks for methane (and carbon) still hold a lot of mysteries. Xploration Seafarers & Scientists provides unique data, collected by seafarers, to scientist to enhance and validate global climate models.
In this case the sampling is part of the Iron Salt Atmospheric Methane Oxidation (ISAMO) project – to better understand the natural methane oxidation (depletion) process catalyzed by the interaction of the iron rich Sahara dust with the salty maritime boundary layer under the influence of sunlight. https://www.sparkclimate.org/methane-removal-approaches/iron-salt-aerosols
