08:30 - 08:40 Conference Opening
08:40 - 10:20 Plenary Session theme: Air-sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy
This session is dedicated to oceanic and atmospheric processes, driven for instance by waves,  bubbles or surfactants, which act upon the air-sea interface and serve to regulate the fluxes of mass  and energy between the coupled ocean-atmosphere system.
Keynote speaker: Daiki Nomura, University of Hokkaido, Japan

 10:50 - 12:40 Plenary session theme: Interconnections between aerosols, clouds and ecosystems
This session is dedicated to the interconnections between aerosols, clouds, and marine ecosystems and the understanding of the system they form as a whole, in which change in one component is manifested in another.
Keynote speaker: Jonathan Abbatt, University of Toronto, Canada

 10:50 - 12:40 Plenary session theme: Integrated studies
This session is dedicated to oceanic systems where integrated studies are required and urgent. They are regional, high sensitivity and high-priority systems, such as for instance the upwelling systems, sea ice and coastal waters.
Keynote speaker: Marcela Cornejo, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile

Greenhouse gases and the oceans
Ocean biogeochemical control on atmospheric chemistry
Science and society
 
 Wednesday 24 April 2019  
 08:30 - 10:20 Plenary Session theme: Greenhouse gases and the oceans
This session is dedicated to the most significant long-lived greenhouse gases, such as CO2, CH4 and N2O and their natural cycles in the oceans and troposphere, which interact with anthropogenic inputs and lead to climatic feedback and environmental impacts.
Keynote speaker: tba

 10:50 - 12:40 Plenary session theme: Ocean biogeochemical control on atmospheric chemistry
This session is dedicated to the ocean emissions of aerosols and reactive gases, such as organic and oxygenated organic compounds, and sulphur-, nitrogen- and halogen-containing compounds and their impacts on atmospheric photochemistry, air quality and stratospheric ozone.
Keynote speaker: Anoop Mahajan, Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, India

Geoengineering
 
 19:30 - 22:30 Conference Banquet
At the Sapporo Grand Hotel, Large Banquet Room, North 1, West 4, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido. About 15 minutes by walking from the conference center.
 
   Thursday 25 April 2019 
 08:30 - 10:20 Plenary Session theme: Geoengineering
This session is dedicated to geoengineering approaches, including observational research and model predictions, as well as to assessing their impact.
Keynote speaker: Andrew Lenton, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia

 10:50 - 12:40 Plenary session theme: Atmospheric deposition and ocean biogeochemistry
This session is dedicated to the broad range of particles of continental origin the ocean receives from the atmosphere. Atmospheric deposition impacts vast regions of the oceans and result from both natural processes and human activities.
Keynote speaker: Ying Chen, Fudan University, China
