Short summary
Existing evidence mainly focuses on the possible impact of tropospheric climate anomalies on the regional air pollutions, but few studies pay attention to the impact of stratospheric changes on haze pollutions in the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei (BTH) region. Our study reveals the linkage between the stratospheric variability and the regional atmospheric environment. The downward-propagating stratospheric signals might have a cleaning effect on the atmospheric environment in the BTH region.
