What is mairs

What is MAIRS?

“Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study (MAIRS) is an IRS program under ESSP, MAIRS mainly focuses on the human-monsoon dynamics over the monsoon Asian region.”


Why monsoon asia

  • Dominated by monsoon climate

  • Unbalanced water resource distribution and Rich in ecosystems

  • Increasing temperature in recent decades

  • Large-scale landscape change due to climate change and human activity

  • Increasing emission of greenhouse gases and aerosols

  • Over pumping of ground water and declining water quality

  • Decreasing ecosystem service goods and declining of biodiversity

Why monsoon Asia?


Vision of mairs

Vision of MAIRS

“To significantly advance understanding of the interactions between the human-natural components of the overall environment in the monsoon Asian region, and implications for the global earth system, in order to support strategies for sustainable development.”


Major achievements 2006

Major achievements 2006

  • Scientific Steering Committee installed

  • International Program Office formally opened in Beijing

  • MAIRS accepted as the first IRS of ESSP

  • International workshop ‘Mountain Zone’ held

  • Initial Science Plan published

Tokyo Bay


Scientific highlights

Scientific Highlights

  • Crucial cross-cutting issues related to natural resources in water, energy, food security, biodiversity, air quality and in disasters.

  • MAIRS integrates research on these issues in four geographic Zones in Asia:

    • the Coastal Zone

    • the Mountain Zone

    • the Semi arid Zone

    • the Urban Zone

Coastal Zone

Mountain Zone

Semi-arid Zone

Urban Zone


Key points of the themes

Urban Zones

Changes in resources use and emission due to rapid urbanization

Coastal Zones

Rapid transformation of land and marine resources

Semi-arid Zones

Vulnerability of ecosystem due to changing climate and land use

Mountain Zones

Multiple stresses on ecosystem and biophysical resources

Key points of the Themes


Hotspots study for mairs

Hotspots study for MAIRS

1, The impacts of climate variation and human perturbation over the semi-arid region

2, Industrial emission and hydrological cycle in expending mega-cities in monsoon Asia

3, global warming and its impacts in Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau region

Semi-arid China


Why semi arid study

Land degradation in semi-arid China

  • Water resources and ecosystem service goods are crucial to the people living in semi-arid regions

  • Semi-arid regions are sensitive to climate variation and human perturbations

  • Semi-arid together with arid areas in monsoon Asia are the major sources of dust aerosol

Why Semi-arid Study?

Research agenda

Research Agenda

  • Interactions among global warming, monsoon variability and aridity

  • land surface-atmosphere processes over semi-arid region

  • Dust aerosols, the hydrological cycle and regional climate


Required field observations

Required field observations

  • Surface Fluxes

  • Atmospheric aerosols, particularly dust aerosols

  • land cover/use information;

  • Biological component


Satellite data requirements

Satellite Data Requirements

  • Data from various sensors, such as MODIS onboard NASA’s Terra platform and VEGETATION onboard SPOT.

  • Other sources of operational stationary and polar-orbit satellites, such as China Fengyu series, would also be explored.


Model requirements

Model Requirements

The global model outputs will be used to drive the regional environmental system model to understand the physical, chemical and biological processes interactions in the semi-arid regions,

including: dust aerosol generation and transfer; theclimate effects of dust aerosols and land use changes due to human activities, etc.

Yangtze River Delta Region (YRD)in China

  • YRD is a typical monsoon area, it occupies 1% of Chinese land area,6.9% of China’s population (total 1.3 billion). 21% of GDP in China is from YRD in 2002.

  • Average economic growth rate is about 9.4% in recent 25 years. YRD is also one of the most polluted areas in China
