Abstract:
Trans-boundary air pollution is a crucial factor affecting air pollution, and its contribution may vary over the time and differ under various weather/climatic conditions. However, very few studies have comprehensively analyzed the spatio-temporal variations of trans-boundary air pollution. This talk will use Hong Kong and Singapore as examples to discuss the significant and special trans-boundary air pollution characteristics in high-density cities under various atmospheric conditions.
