SOLAS - BRAZIL
The Brazilian Committee was organized in 2003. It is called Solas Brazil and it was initially created as a web site where Brazilian scientists could access and contact us. So far we have 3 projects involving the University of São Paulo (USP), National Institute of Research (INPE) and the Parana Federal University (UFPr). From the scientific point of view the idea is to use SOLAS as an umbrella to motivate the formation of local research groups in universities and research institutions in Brazil focusing on air-sea interactions.
