Short summary
Haze pollution has been a common problem in China. In this study, the traits of upper air visibility and the two-dimensional haze characteristic were investigated in the northwest of downtown Beijing by using a multi-platform analysis. An opposite tendency to PM2.5 mass concentration appears for upper air visibility by hourly and daily haze analysis. Moreover, the delayed variations of upper air visibility between high altitude and low altitude reveal the vertical transport of pollutants.
