Workshop on Atmospheric Composition and the Asian Summer Monsoon (ACAM)


This workshop will facilitate the development of collaboration across a broad range of scientific research related to the Asian summer monsoon (ASM), including the coupling of ASM dynamics with:

  • regional emissions and air quality;
  • aerosol and clouds;
  • the impact of convection on tropospheric chemistry; and 
  • the role of the upper level anticyclone in the transport of water vapor and pollution into the stratosphere.

Among other things, the potential outcomes of the workshop include better identification of scientific challenges, knowledge sharing on ongoing efforts in measurements, modeling activities and capabilities, and identification of research gaps.
