Global Monitoring / Forecasting of Reactive GasesThe Chemical Weather Forecast
Current operational ozone monitoring capability is a good basis for developing a global capability to monitor reactive gases and associated aerosols
Integrate chemical modules with weather models, to provide global assimilation & forecasts of the distributions of
- ozone and its precursors
- sulfate aerosol
- other aerosol
The global models can drive regional chemistry and air quality models.
