Below are specific achievements/outcomes from my stay. In most cases, we discussed ideas, exchanged data, and made plots, and iterated these.

  • Compared HTAP2 models (including CAM-chem) to NIES monitoring data by cargoships in the Asia/Oceania region.
  • Discussed observed O3 trends over Japan derived from NIES observations, compared the observed O3 trends to CAM-chem runs (for CCMi), discussed issues of sampling frequency/time when comparing models to observations, shared obs. data for CAM-chem evaluation
  • Assisted to put new emission factors for China’s agriculture burning (from our JGR paper) to FINN inventory.
  • Had discussions on the next step of ACAM, BB contributions to the O3 enhancement over Guam seen during the CONTRAST campaign, intercomparison of the data between US-TORERO campaign and Japanese-EqPOS campaign made in the eastern Pacific.
