Short summary
In order to improve the forecasting of atmospheric aerosols over China, the ensemble square root filter algorithm was extended to simultaneously optimize the chemical initial conditions and primary and precursor emissions. This system was applied to assimilate hourly surface PM2.5 measurements. The forecasts with the optimized initial conditions and emissions typically outperformed those from the control experiment without data assimilation.
