The UK Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (UK SOLAS) was devised to examine the interaction between the atmosphere and ocean. The focus was on chemical exchanges that affect marine productivity and climate. UK SOLAS was the UK's contribution to the international SOLAS programme. UK SOLAS data are managed by the UK SOLAS Data Centre (SDC), co-ordinated by the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) in collaboration with the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC).
