Short summary
Fires including peatland burning in Southeast Asia (SA) have become a major concern in the region. In order to improve our understanding of the spatiotemporal coverage and influence of fire aerosols in SA, we have used surface visibility and aerosol observations, added by decade-long simulations using the WRF model with a fire aerosol module. Our result suggests that mitigation policies targeting both biomass burning and fossil fuel burning sources need to be implemented.
