Short summary
During the Asian Monsoon, pollutants are uplifted to the upper troposphere where they are trapped within the large scale Asian monsoon anticyclone. Among these pollutants are O3 precursors such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO). Based on satellite observations and model simulations, we have estimated the impact of anthropogenic and natural sources on O3 in the monsoon anticyclone. Our results show that Asian pollution and LiNOx have comparable contributions.
