Short summary
Ozone, carbon monoxide and relative humidity were measured by two China Airlines aircraft equipped with IAGOS instruments during the summer of 2016. We examined landing and take-off profiles near Taipei (Taiwan), in the vicinity of three typhoons, in relation to ERA-5 meteorological reanalyses. Upstream of the storms, these data suggest that air is transported downwards from the stratosphere. Downstream, the troposphere is cleaner and moister due to the uplift of marine boundary layer air.
