Characteristics of Saharan dust emission mechanisms in boreal summer: a satellite and modelling approach

Abstract:

Mineral dust is one of the most abundant atmospheric aerosols and has a wide range of impacts on climate, meteorology, health and biogeochemistry. North African sources are responsible for about half of the total atmospheric burden, peaking as an emission source in the boreal summer months of June, July and August. In-situ data from the Fennec observation campaign of 2011 and 2012 indicates that cold pool outflows (CPOs) from convective downdrafts are the primary meteorological driver of t...
