A field campaign on air quality was carried out in Shanghai in winter of 2012. The concentrations of NO, NO2, NOx, SO2, CO, and PM2.5 increased during haze formation. The average masses of SO4(2-), NO3(-) and NH4(+) were 10.3, 11.7 and 6.7 μg/m(3) during the haze episodes, which exceeded the average (9.2, 7.9, and 3.4 μg/m(3)) of these components in the non-haze days. The mean values for the aerosol scattering coefficient (bsp), aerosol absorption coefficient (bap) and single scattering albedo… CONTINUE READING
