English Abstract: Haze pollution is a serious air quality issue in China. Previous studies over the North China Plain (NCP) mainly focused on analysing the haze during boreal winter. However, the variation in haze during spring and the related factors remain unclear. This study investigates inter-annual variation of the spring haze, which is represented by the humidity-corrected dry extinction coefficient (DEC) over the NCP. During high DEC years, pronounced positive DEC anomalies appear over the NCP and its surrounding regions. Correspondingly, a notable anticyclonic anomaly is observed over Northeast Asia, inducing significant southeasterly wind anomalies over the NCP. The anomalous southeasterly winds reduce wind speed and increase relative humidity, which provides favourable meteorological conditions for accumulation and growth of aerosol pollutants. Further analysis shows that the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) contributes to the formation of anticyclonic anomalies over Northeast Asia via downstream propagating atmospheric wave trains. Additionally, positive sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies over the subtropical northeastern Atlantic Ocean may also impact the DEC variation. The linear barotropic model experiment further confirms the important role of subtropical northeastern Atlantic SST anomalies in contributing to the anomalous anticyclone over Northeast Asia and southerly wind anomalies over the NCP region, which are triggered via eastwards propagating atmospheric wave trains. This study gives support to the idea that the NAO and the North Atlantic SST may be potential predictors for the frequently observed springtime NCP haze variation. © 2018 Royal Meteorological Society
