The atmospheric boundary layer connects the land surface to the atmosphere through the turbulent exchange of heat, momentum, and trace gases. In addition, it plays an important role in the formation and evolution of weather and climate. The characteristics and formation mechanisms of the deep atmospheric boundary layer have been key focus areas in atmospheric boundary layer research. Focusing on extremely arid regions and special geographical locations, the observational facts and influencing factors of the deep atmospheric boundary layer were reviewed and summarized. Furthermore, a physical description of turbulent motion in the development of the deep atmospheric boundary layer was provided. Using the Taklimakan Desert as an example, the effects of the interactions between the deep atmospheric boundary layer and dust stagnation on weather and climate were discussed. In order to provide a roadmap for future research, this study identified and outlined four key scientific problems related to deep atmospheric boundary layer research.
