  Name: MAX-DOAS network observations of NO2 and aerosols over Asia and Russia
  Abbreviation: MAX-DOAS Asia/Russia
  Description: Air quality change in Asia and surrounding regions is paid attention because of the rapid and substantial increase in the human activity in this region. We have established a long-term MAX-DOAS (Multi-Axis Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy) monitoring network over Asia and Russia regions to provide vertically-resolved (or integrated) NO2 densities and aerosol extinction, as mainly supported by the Japan EOS (Earth Observation System) Promotion Program of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Our aims are 1) to validation satellite observations and chemical transport models with respect to tropospheric NO2 and aerosols and 2) to observe diurnal variations and vertical distributions beyond the capabilities of current orbiting satellite sensors. This project is achieved by international collaboration between JAMSTEC, GIST (Gwangju, Korea), AIOFM (Hefei, China), IAP (Zvenigorod, Russia) and IAO (Tomsk, Russia).
