Room for more gear…..
Aeronet, BC, CO, ozone, meteorology
Aeronet, lidar, ozonesondes, ozone, met
BC, CO, ozone, met
Also from Pokhara
funded by NASA:
vertical profiles of BC, CO, O3, met, etc w/ light aircraft
Roof and lab site on National University of Singapore campus. Easy to add equipment.
Solar flux radiometers will be added to several AERONET sites from GSFC and NRL.
2 others will have “direct diffuse” solar radiometers.
Source Sampling (Montana group):
Mobile FTIR which may be deployed for source sampling in Thailand.
Gases: HCN, CO, CH4, CO2, NH3, NOx, HCl, NMHC, OVOC PM2.5: EC/OC, metals (filters can be added)
Other measurements (Need to negotiate data access)
Gases: HCN, CO, CH4, CO2, NH3, NOx, HCl, NMHC, OVOC
PM2.5: EC/OC, metals (filters can be added)
Component of AERONET
MAN coverage-Oct 06 to Jan 2012
In the last several years data acquisition was extended to the areas that previously had very little or no coverage at all

All sites co-located
✗ International agreement not final
* Hong Kong group operates their own ALS lidar. They are not part of MPLNET due to current ban on bi-lateral NASA-China interactions.
45 sondes per station,

Every other day the SHADOZ payload at Utapao will include the Cryogenic Frostpoint Hygrometer (CFH) for a total of 20 launches
CFH relative humidity measurements in the TTL clearly demark the tape recorder write head locally and combined with ozone can diagnose the depth of strat-trop exchange.
Much of tropospheric ozone is of pollution or stratospheric origin, especially near Asian monsoon anticyclone; LRT (long-range transport) also a source
Temperature and ozone in TTL indicated several types of wave activity in TC4 (Selkirk et al., 2010; Thompson et al., 2010). Convection may be more intense and widespread in SEAC4RS
