Global Air Pollution
Transport pathways and mechanisms of Asian pollutants to the Arctic
East Asia is the region with the largest emissions of anthropogenic air pollutants and thus the emissions from this region have great impacts on the global and regional climate and air quality including the Arctic. We examined long-range transport of black carbon and carbon monoxide from East Asia to the Arctic and associated meteorological conditions using model simulations and satellite measurements.
