Summary
Abstract: Results from a global mineral dust transport model are available here.

Spatial, temporal, and size distributions of mineral dust with sizes
of less than 10 5m radius were calculated with a global dust model
(Tegen and Fung 1994) based on the GISS three-dimensional atmospheric
tracer transport model (Russell and Lerner 1981). The total dust load
as well as the ... View entire text
