Short summary
The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei (BTH) region has suffered from severe haze pollution in recent years. It is important to understand the possible reasons and whether it can be predicted on the seasonal timescale. This studies suggested that the winter haze pollution in BTH can be forecasted or estimated credibly based on the optimized atmospheric circulation indices. Thus it is valuable and significant for the government to take action in dealing with the probably severe haze pollutions in advance.
