October 5, 2017

Dr. Kazuyuki Miyazaki joined in and contributed to the “Korea-United States Air Quality Study (KORUS-AQ)” campaign as an international collaborator for the numerical modelling team at the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). KORUS-AQ – an international cooperative air quality field study carried out in 2016 jointly by the Republic of Korea and the United States – received the Group Achievement Award from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for its outstanding achievements. Dr. Miyazaki is a senior scientist in the Environmental Geochemical Cycle Research Group at JAMSTEC’s Research and Development Center for Global Change (RCGC). For KORUS-AQ, he used JAMSTEC’s four-dimensional data assimilation system of atmospheric composition to combine satellite observations with a numerical model, and provided new knowledge on atmospheric and environmental variations in East Asia.
