Three times of aerial observation experiments were intended to be carried out in autumn, winter, and spring during the research period. We carried out aerial observation experiments in October 2009, December 2010, and March 2012 as planned. Based on the results of chemical analyses of aerosols, model analyses by use of a computer simulation model, as well as back trajectory analyses, present status of the air pollution over the East China Sea was evaluated. For these results 2012 Award of Aerosol Measurements from Japan Association of Aerosol Science and Technology was awarded. Moreover, 39th Environmental Award (sponsored by the Hitachi Environment Foundation and supported by Ministry of Environment of Japan) was awarded to the results of our 20 years aerial observations including the results of this research.
