The NASA Transport and Chemical
Evolution over the Pacific (TRACE-P) comprised the third
of three planned Pacific Exploratory Missions in the central
and western regions of the Pacific Ocean basin. TRACE-P
was part of NASA's Global Tropospheric Experiment (GTE).
The GTE is an ongoing element of the Tropospheric Chemistry
Program, a Research and Analysis (R&A) program within
the Science Division of NASA's Office for Earth Science
TRACE-P, conducted in March/April 2001,
had as it's major objectives to 1) determine the chemical
composition of the Asian outflow over the western Pacific
in spring in order to understand and quantify the export
of chemically and radiatively important gases and aerosols,
and their precursors, from the Asian continent and to 2)
determine the chemical evolution of the Asian outflow over
the western Pacific in spring and to understand the ensemble
of processes that control the evolution.
