Session Description:
Current air quality models are often challenged to reproduce the extreme levels of ozone and particulate matter observed using high pollution events, such as those frequently experienced in East and Southeast Asia. Many studies noticed that ozone and particulate matter formation rates during these high pollution events were too faster to be fully explained by our current understanding of the atmospheric chemistry. Complex emission sources, unique climate and topography might also play a role during these high pollution events. While progress has been made in several aspects, such as additional sources and formation pathways of atmospheric radicals, heterogeneous reactions on particle surface for sulfate and organic aerosol formation, our understanding of the chemical processes during these high pollution events is still very limited. This session provides an opportunity for researchers from field measurements, lab experiments, and numeric modeling areas to share their progress on this important area.
