Short summary
Measured aerosol heights over the Maritime Continent are higher than previously thought, with 61 to 83 % of aerosols above the boundary layer. These aerosols should hence have a larger impact on the climate. The use of a plume rise model cannot match the measurements, unless the measured fire energy is increased by 0–60 %. Furthermore, the model is too spread, indicating the importance of including convection and aerosol–radiation interactions. Significant model improvements will be required.
