Short summary
The discussion was based on high time resolution data which could provide detailed insight into short haze periods. The dominant species in PM2.5 and which were responsible for the visibility reduction were identified in Suzhou. The formation mechanisms of sulfate and nitrate were explored as high secondary aerosol contributions to particulate pollution during haze events. The impact of local and transport sources on the origin of aerosol pollution in Suzhou was discussed.
