Short summary
The importance of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) is recognized, but little is known about the Tibetan Plateau (TP) ABL due to the scarce data. Based on new observations from the Third Tibetan Plateau Atmospheric Scientific Experiment, we reveal a big drop in the ABL height from the west to the east of the TP for the first time, which is more remarkable than in the United States and all of China. This steep inhomogeneity in the TP is due to the difference in local climate and environment.
