Linkages between climate and the intercontinental transport (ICT) of ozone and aerosols offer opportunities for coordinated mitigation of air pollution and global warming. This article considers the ICT of ozone and aerosols among Asia, Europe, and North America, and highlights linkages between air quality and climate that might benefit future emissions control strategies.
