Use of Weather Factors in Clothing Studies in Korea and its Implications: a Review.

Asia Pac J Atmos Sci 2022 Apr 25:1-13. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Research Center for Climate Sciences, Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea.

Climate change-induced weather changes have a sensitive impact on the clothing industry. Developing a predictive model for demand volatility caused by weather changes is necessary to allow a company to generate profit while reducing unnecessary resource use and greenhouse gas and wastewater emissions due to overproduction. This review compares and analyzes empirical clothing research papers published in the Republic of Korea since 2000 and examines research directions on the integration of clothing and weather and how weather information is utilized in the clothing industry.

Statistical Seasonal Forecasting of Winter and Spring PM Concentrations Over the Korean Peninsula.

Asia Pac J Atmos Sci 2022 Mar 28:1-13. Epub 2022 Mar 28.

Air Quality Forecasting Center, National Institute of Environmental Research, Incheon, South Korea.

Concentrations of fine particulate matter smaller than 2.5 μm in diameter (PM) over the Korean Peninsula experience year-to-year variations due to interannual variation in climate conditions. This study develops a multiple linear regression model based on slowly varying boundary conditions to predict winter and spring PM concentrations at 1-3-month lead times. Read More

Pandemic induced lockdown as a boon to the Environment: trends in air pollution concentration across India.

Asia Pac J Atmos Sci 2021 1;57(4):741-756. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

Department of Physics, Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University, Garhwal, Srinagar, Uttarakhand 246174 India.

The present paper designed to understand the variations in the atmospheric pollutants viz. PM, PM, SO, NO, and CO during the COVID-19 pandemic over eight most polluted Indian cities (Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad). A significant reduction in the PM (63%), PM (56%), NO (50%), SO (9%), and CO (59%) were observed over Major Dhyan Chand Stadium. Read More

Competing influences of greenhouse warming and aerosols on Asian Summer Monsoon circulation and rainfall.

Asia Pac J Atmos Sci 2017 May;Volume 53(Iss 2):181-194

Climate and Radiation Laboratory, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Greenbelt, MD 20771.

In this paper, we have compared and contrasted competing and amplifying influences on the global and regional drivers, circulation and rainfall responses of the Asian monsoon under global greenhouse warming (GHG) and aerosol forcing, based on CMIP5 historical simulations. Under GHG-only forcing, the land warms much faster than the ocean, magnifying the pre-industrial climatological land-ocean thermal contrast and hemispheric asymmetry, warmer northern than southern hemisphere. A steady increasing warm-ocean-warmer-land (WOWL) trend has been in effect since the 1950's substantially increasing moisture transport from adjacent oceans, and enhancing rainfall over the Asian monsoon regions.
