    20. Biogeochemical Studies on Atmosphere, Ocean, and their Interaction in the western North Pacific region

    The western North Pacific is recognized as a large sink region for CO2, involving complex interactions across multiple spheres in the cycling process. Recent rapid climate changes have perturbed the biogeochemical and physical processes in the atmosphere and ocean of this region. To enhance our understanding of these processes in this region, integrated and cross-cutting studies are essential, encompassing the Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, Biosphere, and Humanosphere across various temporal and spatial scales.

    In this special issue SPEPS, we invite authors to contribute their latest studies and/or reviews focusing on Atmosphere, Ocean, and Atmosphere-Ocean Interaction in the western North Pacific region. We particularly welcome multidisciplinary studies that couple chemical, biological, and/or physical topics related to the atmosphere and ocean, obtained from ship-based observation, numerical model calculations, satellite data analysis, and laboratory experiments. Discussions centered on ground-based observation surrounding the western North Pacific are also welcomed.
