| N o other region on Earth is as large and diverse a source of aerosols (and trace gases) as the Asian continent. In spring, when storm and frontal activity in Asia is most prevalent, industrial pollution, biomass burning, and mineral dust outflows produce an extraordinarily complex regional aerosol mix, composed of inorganic compounds (such as salts of(More)
Air quality prediction plays an important role in the management of our environment. Computational power and effi-ciencies have advanced to the point where chemical transport models can predict pollution in an urban air shed with spatial resolution less than a kilometer, and cover the globe with a horizontal resolution of less than 50 km. Predicting air(More)
17 18 A comprehensive regional-scale chemical transport model, STEM-2K1, is employed to study dust 19 outflows and their influence on regional chemistry in the high dust ACE-ASIA period, from April 4 to 14, 20 2001. In this period, dust storms are initialized in the Taklamagan and Gobi deserts due to cold air 21 outbreaks, are transported eastward, and(More)

[1] Fast time resolution (>1 Hz) sulfur dioxide (SO 2) measurements were obtained using an atmospheric pressure ionization mass spectrometer with isotopically labeled internal standard on the NASA Wallops P-3B during the NASA Transport and Chemical Evolution Over the Pacific (TRACE-P) field experiment. The high time resolution for SO 2 allowed a view into(More)
