Short summary
Based on 1-year in situ monitoring data of 16 cities, this paper can enhance the understanding of the pollution characteristics of particles (PM2.5 and PM10) in the Yangtze River Delta region, China. Based on NCEP reanalysis data, the establishment of the potential links between different levels of particle pollution and predominant synoptic patterns can provide an insightful view on formulating pollution control and mitigation strategies.
