Symposium on |
ater Gas Transfer
University of Heidelberg
July 24-27, 1995
The research group Image Processing organized the Third International Symposium on Air-Water Gas Transfer that took place
from July 24 to 27, 1995 at the University of Heidelberg in Germany.
It was chaired by B. Jähne with E. C. Monahan as co-chair and K. O. Münnich as local chair.
The symposium focused on a deeper understanding of gas transfer in natural systems, air-sea gas transfer and reaeration of
rivers and lakes. The basic conference themes were:
Waves and Bubbles
Sensing and Global
The symposium was a great
success with about 120 participants; about half of them came from the United States. The symposium received funding from
the Office of Naval Research (US), the Department of Energy (US), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA), the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO), the German Science Foundation
(DFG), the State of Baden Württemberg, University of Heidelberg, and the Connecticut Sea Grant College.
A selection of 80 papers from the symposium were published in December 1995 under the title Air-Water Gas Transfer with
B. Jähne and E. C. Monahan as editors by
AEON, Hanau, ISBN 3-9804429-0-X.
The work is also available on CD (ISBN 3-9804429-1-8). AEON can be
