Abstract : The Coastal Aerosol Workshop (23-24 May 94, Monterey CA) was held to assess the state of the art of aerosol research, identify deficiencies in current knowledge of coastal aerosols, and define fruitful areas for a Navy research program. Workshop results will form the basis for a coastal aerosol research program conducted jointly by the Naval Research Laboratory and Office of Naval Research. Workshop sessions considered three component topics: aerosol surface source functions; aerosol physics, chemistry, and transformation processes; and aerosol radiative properties. Issues identified as having pressing requirements for further research included: (1) Surface aerosol generation - spume generation, surf and near-shore processes; (2) Transformation processes - near-surface processes' dynamics and characterization; (3) Remote sensing - programs integrating aerosol, gas, and meteorological measurement suites with satellite and ground-based remote sensing; (4) Modeling and meteorology - initialization of aerosol distributions; and (5) Aerosol technology - need for a utilitarian LIDAR system capable of multi-parameter inversion.
