Description

Intercontinental Chemical Transport Experiment - North America Phase A (INTEX-A) is an integrated atmospheric field experiment performed over North America. The study seeks to understand the transport and transformation of gases and aerosols on transcontinental/intercontinental scales and their impact on air quality and climate. A particular focus in this study is to quantify and characterize the inflow and outflow of pollution over North America. The main constituents of interest are ozone and precursors, aerosols and precursors, and the long-lived greenhouse gases. INTEX-NA is part of a larger international ITCT (Intercontinental Transport and Chemical Transformation) initiative. INTEX-NA goals are greatly facilitated and enhanced by a number of concurrent and coordinated national and international field campaigns and satellite observations. Synthesis of the ensemble of observation from surface, airborne, and space platforms, with the help of a hierarchy of models is an important goal of INTEX-NA.
