Although a lot of good data are available, long-term trends are not the usual target of such aerial observations. The greatest advantage of ground-based observations is that long-term trends and seasonal variations of air pollutants are usually the main targets of such studies. However, we continued aerial observations for about 20 years in almost the same area. Such observations have seldom been made elsewhere in the world, and we obtained very rare data. The aircraft employed were a Cessna 404 and a Fairchild Swearingen Merlin IV, chartered from Showa Aviation Company (Yao, Japan), and a Beechcraft King Air 200 T, chartered from Diamond Air Service Incorporation (Toyoyama, Japan).

Therefore, to gain observational data in forested areas, such data should be gathered in the region. g.
