Short summary
Severe haze days in eastern China (HDEC) are affected by the atmospheric circulation variations on a synoptic scale, while the dominant atmospheric circulation patterns influencing HDEC and the differences between them are still unclear. This study obtains three dominant circulation types that could lead to severe HDEC and investigates the differences between them. The results provide a basis for establishing applicable haze prediction and management policies.
