ESSIC / AOSC Professor Zhanqing Li facilitated a symposium at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) held in Washington, DC during mid- February.  The symposium entitled, “Air Pollution, Climate Change, and Policy in Asia,” addressed major pollution/emission sources; the direct and indirect effects of aerosol on long-term trends in key climate variables; interactions between aerosols and the monsoon system; and health impacts in the context of the region’s response policies.  Speakers included Li, ESSIC Research Scientist Bill Lau, and NOAA’s V. “Ram” Ramaswamy.  ESSIC Faculty Specialist Maureen Cribb was the symposium’s co-organizer.
