Short summary
Under the effects of the Tibetan Plateau, dry low-pressure systems are often formed at 700 hPa in the Sichuan Basin, China, during winter. Here, we found that the activities of these dry low-pressure systems have significant influence on most winter heavy air pollution events in the Sichuan Basin. Influencing mechanisms have been summarized. The strong inversion layer above the atmospheric boundary layer induced by the low-pressure system plays a key role in the formation of heavy air pollution.
