Turbulent Mechanisms for the Deep Convective Boundary Layer in the Taklimakan Desert

Hongsheng Zhang, Lu Zhang, Wei Wei & Ali Mamtimin
The deep convective boundary layer (CBL) in the Taklimakan Desert plays an important role in the climate system in East Asia. Based on the observation experiment and large-eddy simulation, turbulent mechanisms for its formation were revealed in this study. This explained why the daily maximum CBL depth was independent of surface heating. In the late-morning, there was a weak temperature inversion and a near-neutral residual layer (RL) above the CBL. With the development of the...
