Short summary
It is crucial for studying regional-scale PM pollution and for the development of efficient joint control policy to improve understanding of the regional background PM concentration. Based on the vertical variation periodic characteristics of particle mass concentration, the atmospheric boundary layer structure, as well as the vertical distribution of chemical composition and pollution source apportionment, a method to estimate regional background PM concentration is proposed.
