Long Range Transport of NOX, NOY, O3 and SOX over East Asia and the Western Pacific Ocean in Winter Season—A Numerical Analysis
The PEM West-B. Pacific Exploratory Mission West: phase B. experiment was carried out from the beginning of February to the mid of March. 1994. The experiment explored chemical composition of the atmosphere over the tropical Pacific Ocean and the Pacific rim area of Asia. The experiment is valuable for understanding of long range transport/transformation of air pollutants released over Asian industrial area in late winter and early spring, and is useful for model validation in semi-global scale.
