ACAM Workshop & Training School

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
