A New Strategy for the US and China

A New Strategy for the US and China

This project will lay the groundwork for longer-term collaboration between the US and China in the arena of science and public policy in the context of climate and human health studies.

Project Title

Joint Research on Air Pollution and Climate Using Innovative Airborne Instrumentation

A key objective of this project is to build connections between experimental atmospheric chemistry research groups at Harvard and in China, and to conduct collaborative studies as the foundation of a larger and long-lasting joint experimental research program.

Project Summary

This project proposes to develop a new joint strategy for obtaining reliable observations of the key processes controlling concentrations of pollutants relevant to human health and climate. The work will lay the foundation of longer term collaboration and launching of future joint field campaigns. Future advances in instrumentation will then contain contributions from both sides as will defining and solving the key scientific questions within the context of air pollution and climate.
