Brief Description of Research
Air pollution is now borderless due to dramatic economic growth in the East Asian region. This could affect not only East Asia, but also North America and the whole northern hemisphere. Transport of air pollution is considered to cause global climate change as well as being a regional environmental issue. Through the measurement of trace gaseous species and aerosols, Dr. Takami studies their space and time distributions and their chemical transformation during transport, which forms a scientific foundation for tackling the environmental problems in this region.
 In collaboration with many other institutes and universities, NIES has conducted ground-based observation of air pollutants at the Cape Hedo Atmosphere and Aerosol Monitoring Station (CHAAMS) at the northern end of Okinawa Prefecture, where a aerosol mass spectrometer (Q-AMS), TEOM, a carbon monitor and a nitrate monitor were continuously operated.
 Dr. Takami is interested in particle formation, surface (heterogeneous) reaction, and chemical transformation of aerosols from laboratory to atmospheric scale.
