The 10th International Workshop on Atmospheric Modeling Research in East Asia of Modeling Inter-Comparison Study in Asia Phase III (MICS-Asia III) was held from 8th to 10th March 2019 in Wuyi County, Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China. It was hosted by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IAP, CAS), co-organized by the Asia Center for Air Pollution Research (ACAP), Japan and undertook by the State Key Laboratory of Atmospheric Boundary Layer Physics and Atmospheric Chemistry (LAPC). More than 60 experts and scholars attended this workshop, including worldwide well-known scholars Prof. Greg Carmichael from the University of Iowa, Prof. Hajime Akimoto from ACAP, Prof. Joshua Fu from the University of Tennessee and other researchers from China, USA, UK, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and other countries and regions.
Prof. WANG Zifa g from IAP, CAS and he mayor of Wuyi County welcomed participants. Over 26 reports, focusing on particulate pollution, photochemical pollution, long-range transport, deposition, emission inventory and interactions between air pollution and climate change, have been presented during the meeting by MICS-Asia III participants from home and abroad, summarizing the main findings of MICS-Asia III. Topics and working schedule of MICS-Asia IV in 2019 were discussed in detail and outlined preliminarily.
MICS-Asia III was designed for evaluating the advantages and shortcomings of current international multi-scale air quality models in East Asia applications, investigating the key atmospheric processes of the air quality modeling, promoting the development of air quality model, establishing a more reasonable anthropogenic emission source inventory in East Asia and studying the interactions between the air pollution and climate change. The success of this workshop summarized the achievements and limitations of MICS-Asia III and promoted the implementing of MICS-Asia IV, which is of great significance on the understandings of air pollution and climate change in East Asia and the improvement of air quality modeling.
This meeting was also sponsored by the People’s Government of Wuyi County.
