Asian Pacific Regional Aerosol Characterization Experiment (ACE-ASIA), 2001

  • The Aerosol Characterization Experiments, part of the larger ITCT initiative, were designed to increase our understanding of how atmospheric aerosol particles affect the Earth’s climate system. The experiments were conducted in the spring of 2001 off the coast of China, Japan and Korea. This region was of particular interest because it is downwind one of the world's largest aerosol source regions on Earth. More information regarding the findings of ACE – ASIA can be found here.
