Short summary
Multiday haze pollution in the Asian continental outflow region is affected by both local and regional sources. The temporal evolution of PM2.5 inorganic species and organic compounds in Seoul, South Korea, and its upwind background site over the Yellow Sea shows the haze development sequentially by regional transport and local primary and secondary sources. Synoptic-scale weather systems and atmospheric blocking patterns play an important role in the dynamical evolution of the multiday haze.
