ACAM (Atmospheric Composition and the Asian Monsoon) is a SPARC/IGAC jointly sponsored activity.
The scientific scope of the workshop follows the four scientific themes of ACAM, each representing a key aspect of the connection between atmospheric composition and Asian monsoon dynamics:
- Emissions and air quality in the Asian monsoon region – This theme spans all seasons, recognizing issues ranging from summertime photochemical smog to winter pollution episodes.
- Aerosols, clouds, and their interactions with the Asian monsoon – This theme recognizes the dominant impact of aerosols on this region and the continuing exploration of evidence for feedbacks influencing the monsoon climate system.
- Impact of monsoon convection on chemistry – This theme focuses on the vertical redistribution of anthropogenic and natural emissions, expanding global the impact of Asian emissions on atmospheric chemistry.
- UTLS Response to the Asian Monsoon – This theme emphasizes the intersection between Asian emissions and the monsoon anticyclone circulation as a conduit for increased anthropogenic influence on the UTLS environment.
