Short summary
Trans-boundary haze pollution is a major health and environmental concern during south-west and north-east monsoon in the South East Asian regions. The concentration of PM2.5 exceeds the tolerable limits (WHO; USA EPA) during the summer monsoon. The novelty of this study is the source characterization of PM2.5 and source-specific risk assessment during intense haze pollution, which are yet to be addressed in this region. The outcomes of this study will give an insight about future implications.
