Short summary
The first intensive multicomponent observation by sky radiometer and MAX-DOAS was performed in Thailand during the 2016 dry season. We found that the concentration of formaldehyde (HCHO) was a useful tracer for biomass burning plumes. With the HCHO enhancement, the ratio of gaseous glyoxal to HCHO concentrations decreased and the aerosol absorption optical depths (AAODs) increased. The wavelength dependence of AAODs was quantified, providing evidence for the presence of brown carbon aerosols.
