Estimation of mineral dust long-wave radiative forcing: sensitivity study to particle properties and application to real cases in the region of Barcelona (2014-01-01)
Open AccessThe aerosol radiative effect in the long-wave (LW) spectral range is sometimes not taken into account in atmospheric aerosol forcing studies at local scale because the LW aerosol effect is assumed to be negligible. At ...
Forecasting the northern African dust outbreak towards Europe in April 2011: a model intercomparison (2016-04-21)
Open AccessIn the framework of theWorld Meteorological Organisation’s Sand and Dust Storm Warning Advisory and Assessment System, we evaluated the predictions of five state-of-the-art dust forecast models during an intense ...
Sources and processes affecting levels and composition of atmospheric particulate matter in the Western Mediterranean (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2002-12-03)
Open AccessThis study is focused on the identification of the sources and processes affecting levels and composition of PM10 and PM2.5 from air quality monitoring networks in Eastern Spain. This is a multidisciplinary study. Time ...
Spatiotemporal evolution of a severe winter dust event in the western Mediterranean: Aerosol optical and physical properties (2017-05-16)
Open AccessAn outstanding Saharan dust event affected the Iberian Peninsula during winter 2016 (20 to 25 February). The impact of this event on ambient PM10 surface levels and its spatial and temporal evolution was investigated by ...
