Short summary
We have modelled biomass burning haze concentrations in Singapore between 2010 and 2015. The major contributing haze source regions at two monitoring stations located in the western and eastern part of Singapore, less than 30 km apart, show significant variation on seasonal and annual timescales, as well as between the stations. Our results show that haze concentrations in Singapore are driven by a combination of local and regional weather, climate, and the location of regional burning.
