Short summary
The manuscript is the first paper to validate and discuss the high-resolution vertical profiles of aerosols using a ceilometer in Beijing, China. We introduce the contribution of aerosols during different air pollution episodes in Beijing. Also, we seize the opportunity of emission reduction during APEC to study the contribution of aerosols. The results are helpful to provide guidance in redefining coordinated emission control strategies to control the regional pollution over northern China.
