Abstract

The Influence of Coastal Processes on Aerosol Composition, Air Chemistry and Marine Eutrophication Invited contribution from the coordinator of subproject CAPMAN G.L. Geernaert National Environmental Research Institute, P.O. Box 358, DK-4000 Roskilde, Denmark Introduction The coastal zone represents a key area for intensive study of environmental, ecological, and societal interactions. Most of the world's population lives within 30 km of the coastline, and most of the pollution is generated in this domain. To sustain coastal societies, human activities are dedicated to intensive agriculture, fisheries, recreation, and a host of commercial and industrial activities. From an atmospheric sciences viewpoint, the coastal zone presents challenges to the interpretation of measurements, the construction of high performance models, and policy development. One encounters extremely inhomogeneous and nonstatio
