Abstract
In this study, we investigated the daily variability of PM10 concentrations in January in Korea during the past 19 years (2001-2019), as well as the associated atmospheric circulation patterns. The daily PM10 concentrations were classified into three cases: low (L; < 50 mu g/m(3)), high (H; 50-100 mu g/m(3)), and extremely high (EH; >= 100 mu g/m(3)). We found that the strength of the East Asian winter monsoon influenced the PM10 variability in the L and H cases. However, the EH cases were strongly influenced by the rapid growth of barotropic warming (anticyclonic anomaly) over the eastern North Atlantic and Northern Europe (ENE), and the stationary Rossby waves grew rapidly over Eurasia within only four days. Analysis of the quasi-geostrophic geopotential tendency budget revealed that the anticyclonic anomaly over the ENE was enhanced by vorticity advection. Linear baroclinic model experiments confirmed that vorticity forcing over the ENE induces favorable atmospheric conditions for the occurrence of EH PM10 events in East Asia. As a result, the PM10 concentration sharply increased sharply by approximately three times over four days. This study suggests that understanding atmospheric teleconnections between the ENE and East Asia can effectively predict the occurrence of EH PM10 events in Korea, helping to reduce the human health risks from atmospheric pollution.
