Dr. Obiminda L. Cambaliza, and Dr. James Simpas, scientists of the Manila Observatory and the Coastal Cities at Risk in the Philippines, are part of the team who are leading the campaign in Maritime Southeast Asia, studying the influence of natural and anthropogenic aerosol particles and their impacts on weather and climate.

This partnership started in 2007, aiming to improve data in understanding the changing monsoon environment of our country environment in the Philippines, where it became an avenue for future developments towards regional research, and innovation in support of air, water, land use, and agricultural policies.
