    • Contribution of the world's main dust source regions to the global cycle of desert dust 

      Kok, Jasper F.; Adebiyi, Adeyemi A.; Albani, Samuel; Balkanski, Yves; Checa Garcia, Ramiro; Klose, Martina; Obiso, Vincenzo; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (Copernicus Publications, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Even though desert dust is the most abundant aerosol by mass in Earth's atmosphere, the relative contributions of the world's major source regions to the global dust cycle remain poorly constrained. This problem hinders ...
    • Dust emission from crusted surfaces: Insights from field measurements and modelling 

      Klose, Martina; Gill, Thomas E.; Etyemezian, Vicken; Nikolich, George; Zadeh, Zahra Ghodsi; Webb, Nicholas P.; Pelt, R. Scott, Van (Elsevier, 2019-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Crusted surfaces can be major sources of mineral dust emission. Quantitative understanding of dust emission from crusted surfaces is limited, because (1) theories on dust emission are not well tested for such surfaces; and ...
    • Field observations of the variability of dust emission, its size-spectrum and mineralogy 

      González-Flórez, Cristina; Klose, Martina; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2020-05)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Atmospheric mineral dust consists of tiny mineral particles that are produced by the wind erosion of arid and semi-arid surfaces of the Earth, and it is one of the most important aerosols in terms of mass in the global ...
    • How much soil dust aerosol is man-made? 

      Klose, Martina; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2019-05-07)
      Conference report
      Open Access
    • Improved representation of the global dust cycle using observational constraints on dust properties and abundance 

      Kok, Jasper F.; Adebiyi, Adeyemi A.; Albani, Samuel; Balkanski, Yves; Checa Garcia, Ramiro; Klose, Martina; Obiso, Vincenzo; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (Copernicus Publications, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Even though desert dust is the most abundant aerosol by mass in Earth's atmosphere, atmospheric models struggle to accurately represent its spatial and temporal distribution. These model errors are partially caused by ...
    • Quantifying the range of the dust direct radiative effect due to source mineralogy uncertainty 

      Li, Longlei; Mahowald, Natalie; Miller, Ron L.; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Klose, Martina; Hamilton, Douglas; Gonçalves Ageitos, María; Ginoux, Paul; Balkanski, Yves; Green, Robert; Kalashnikova, Olga; Kok, Jasper; Obiso, Vicenzo; Paynter, David; Thompson, David R. (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2021-03-17)
      Article
      Open Access
      The large uncertainty in the mineral dust direct radiative effect (DRE) hinders projections of future climate change due to anthropogenic activity. Resolving modeled dust mineral speciation allows for spatially and temporally ...
