Temperature dependence of global precipitation extremes.
[1] Data from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) covering the period 1979-2007 are examined for changes of precipitation extremes as a function of global mean temperature by using aExpand

Optical properties of Asian dusts in the free atmosphere measured by Raman lidar at Taipei, Taiwan
Abstract The optical properties (extinction-to-backscatter ratio, backscattering, depolarization, and backscatter-related Angstrom exponent) and height distribution of Asian dusts were measured usingExpand

Fertilization potential of volcanic dust in the low‐nutrient low‐chlorophyll western North Pacific subtropical gyre: Satellite evidence and laboratory study
volcanic particles and a phytoplankton bloom. FLH was found to be ∼9–17 × 10 −3 mW cm −2 mm −1 sr −1 in the patch and ∼3– 5×1 0 −3 mW cm −2 mm −1 sr −1 in the ambient water, indicating that aExpand

Interpreting aerosol lidar profiles to better estimate surface PM2.5 for columnar AOD measurements
Abstract Satellite aerosol optical depth (AOD) products have been used to estimate surface PM 2.5 in different parts of the world. However, some revealed good but some relatively poorer relationshipExpand

Estimation of foreign versus domestic contributions to Taiwan's air pollution
Based on the analysis of observational data obtained over a period of 17 years, this study developed a novel approach estimating long-term changes in the relative contributions of domestic andExpand

Effects of acidic processing, transport history, and dust and sea salt loadings on the dissolution of iron from Asian dust
[1] Aerosol particles collected over the East China Sea (ECS) were analyzed for water-soluble Fe (Fe s ), total Fe (Fe T ), and other chemical species. Eight samples were classified as high AsianExpand

Numerical investigation of the coagulation mixing between dust and hygroscopic aerosol particles and its impacts
A statistical-numerical aerosol parameterization was incorporated into the Community Multiscale Air Quality modeling system to study the coagulation mixing process focusing on a dust storm event thatExpand

Dust transport from non-East Asian sources to the North Pacific
[1] It is generally thought that East Asia dominates the supply of eolian dust to the North Pacific. Here we show the first data-based evidence of dust primarily from non-East Asian sources evenExpand

Aerosol nucleation spikes in the planetary boundary layer
Abstract. Photochemically driven nucleation bursts, which typically occur within a few hours after sunrise, often produce strong aerosol number concentration (ANC) fluctuations. The causes of suchExpand

Sources and formation pathways of organic aerosol in a subtropical metropolis during summer
Abstract A field campaign combined with numerical simulations was designed to better understand the emission sources and formation processes of organic aerosols (OA) in a subtropical environment. TheExpand
