The China Project's atmospheric research is committed to building observationally validated, fundamental research on the physical and chemical dimensions of China’s atmospheric environment, from urban to global scales. In addition to the model-based research described here, it includes field observations described here and bottom-up emissions research described here. It is also a core component of a Project-wide interdisciplinary framework now being applied to evaluation of national GHG and pollution control policies, described here.
