Summary
Abstract: The scientific objectives of ACE-Asia are to determine and understand
the properties and controlling factors of the aerosol in the
anthropogenically modified atmosphere of Eastern Asia and the
Northwest Pacific and to assess their relevance for radiative forcing
of climate. To achieve these goals, ACE-Asia will pursue three
specific objectives: 1) - Determine the physical, chemical, and
radiative properties of the major aerosol types in the Eastern Asia
and Northwest Pacific region and investigate the relationships among
these properties. 2) - Quantify the physical and chemical processes
controlling the evolution of the major aerosol types and in particular
their physical, chemical, and radiative properties. 3) - Develop
procedures to extrapolate aerosol properties and processes from local
to regional and global scales, and assess the regional direct and
indirect radiative forcing by aerosols in the Eastern Asia and
Northwest Pacific region
