[1] Data obtained during the TRACE-P experiment is used to evaluate how well the CFORS/STEM-2K1 regional-scale chemical transport model is able to represent the aircraft observations. Thirty-one calculated trace gas and aerosol parameters are presented and compared to the in situ data. The regional model is shown to accurately predict many of the important(More)

The factors controlling the concentrations of HOx radicals (= OH + peroxy) in the upper troposphere (8-12 km) are examined using concurrent aircraft observations of OH, HO2, H2O2, CH3OOH, and CH2O made during the Subsonic Assessment Ozone and Nitrogen Oxide Experiment (SONEX) at northern midlatitudes in the fall. These observations, complemented by(More)
[1] Ground-based measurements of aerosols and trace gases were conducted at an urban site in Tokyo (Komaba) and a site 50 km to the north (Kisai) during July–August 2004. An Aerodyne aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS) was deployed at each measurement site to investigate the chemical evolution of submicron organic aerosol (OA) in polluted air. The mass(More)
T-cell immunoglobulin domain and mucin domain-3 (TIM-3, also known as HAVCR2) is an activation-induced inhibitory molecule involved in tolerance and shown to induce T-cell exhaustion in chronic viral infection and cancers. Under some conditions, TIM-3 expression has also been shown to be stimulatory. Considering that TIM-3, like cytotoxic T lymphocyte(More)
[1] In situ measurements of trace gases and aerosols were conducted at an urban site in Tokyo (35 390N, 139 400E). The data obtained in summer (July–August 2003), fall (September–October 2003), and winter (February 2003 and January–February 2004) are used for the present analysis. Size-resolved chemical composition of nonrefractory (vaporized at 600 C under(More)
This paper discusses the potential of a transformerless STATic synchronous COMpensator (STATCOM) intended for installation on the 6.6-kV industrial and utility distribution systems. The STATCOM consists of a five-level diode-clamped pulsewidth-modulation converter rated at 1 MVA and a voltage-balancing circuit rated at 6 kVA. Moreover, this paper designs,(More)
[1] The NASA Langley Research Center and University of Wisconsin Regional Air Quality Modeling System (RAQMS) is used to estimate the tropospheric ozone budget over east Asia during the NASA Global Tropospheric Experiment (GTE) Transport and Chemical Evolution over the Pacific (TRACE-P) mission. The computed ozone budget explicitly accounts for(More)
