Equatorial Asia experiences frequent degraded air quality conditions, as a result of the complex interaction between the abundant air pollution sources and the local/regional meteorological patterns, which ultimately impact densely populated cities. Due to the scarcity of extensive observational datasets, both observational and modeling studies have been rather limited in their spatio-temporal extent and/or the certainty of their estimates. This study presents a country-wide, multi-decadal analysis of PM10 observations (i.e. particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter < 10 μm) from a network in Malaysia comprising 52 monitoring sites, which allows a novel and comprehensive assessment of the spatio-temporal variability of the country's air quality.
