Summary
Abstract: The objectives of the Transport and Chemistry Experiment in the Pacific (TRACE-P), conducted in March/April 2001, were 1) determine the chemical composition of the Asian outflow over the western Pacific in spring in order to understand and quantify the export of chemically and radiatively important gases and aerosols, and their precursors, from the Asian continent, and to 2) determine the chemical evolution of the Asian outflow over the western Pacific in spring and to understand the ensemble of processes that control the evolution. TRACE-P employed the NASA DC-8 and P-3B aircraft equipped with instrumentation for measuring numerous chemical compounds and aerosols. Major deployment sites included Hilo, Hawaii; Hong Kong, and the Yokota Air Base near Tokyo, Japan.
