Haze has become a major environmental problem in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei in China. How to prevent the environmental degradation without reducing the speed of economic development has attracted the attention of the public and most of scholars. A brief summary about the formation and the control process of atmospheric pollution in some developed countries is reviewed and the particularity of the atmospheric pollution problems in China is pointed out. The importance of regional haze research to the economic and social development, climate and environmental change, human health and the regional harmonious development is reviewed. The frequent haze in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei is mainly determined by sources and the meteorological elements. Some questions for further research of haze pollution in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei are proposed. Finally, the atmospheric pollution trends in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and East Asia is summarized from the perspective of global climate change.

Key words:  Haze      Atmospheric environment      PM2.5
