Short summary
The North China Plain in winter frequently suffers from severe haze pollution which is mainly ascribed to elevation of PM2. 5. Although the government has performed a series of control measures for major pollution sources, the PM2. 5 levels were still above 1000 ug m-3 in some areas of the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei region. In this study, we found that residential coal combustion made an evident contribution to PM2. 5 in the region, the contributions of which were estimated to be about 32–58 %.
