The tropical western Pacific (TWP) warm pool is a uniquely important region for Earth's climate system.
The intensive sampling of actinic flux, ozone, water vapor, and other active species will allow constrained photochemical calculation of hydroxyl radical over the TWP, which will lead to a better understanding of the processes that control atmospheric oxidation capacity in the tropical western Pacific. Oxidation processes in the tropical atmosphere play a major role in the global budget of many trace gases, including greenhouse gases.

THE ATMOSPHERIC BRIDGE AT WORK IN THE TROPICAL WESTERN PACIFIC. The ENSO signals in the tropical western Pacific sector are used here as an example for illustrating the impacts of the atmospheric bridge mechanism on the atmosphereocean system.
Due to the reversal of the prevailing wind direction, piled-up warm water in the tropical western Pacific flows eastward toward South America as triggered by oceanic Kelvin waves and deepens the thermocline off the coast of South America, which causes a rise in sea level in the eastern Pacific.
Scientists ran multiple month-long simulations of summer storm clouds using data from three areas with different levels of pollution, humidity, and wind: the tropical western Pacific, southeastern China, and the Great Plains in Oklahoma.
