Short summary
This study highlights the importance of taking into account a simultaneous use of land use, fire and precipitation for understanding the impacts of fires on the atmospheric loading and distribution of aerosols in Southeast Asia over both space and time. Also, it highlights that there are significant advantages of using 8-day and monthly average values (instead of daily data) in order to better quantify the magnitude and timing of the inter- and intra-annual variance of Southeast Asian fires.
