Atmospheric dust variability from Arabia and China over the last 500,000 years

Roberts, Andrew; Rohling, Eelco J.; Grant, K; Larrasoaña, Juan C.; Liu, Qingsong


Atmospheric mineral dust aerosols affect Earth's radiative balance and are an important climate forcing and feedback mechanism. Dust is argued to have played an important role in past natural climate changes through glacial cycles, yet temporal and spatial dust variability remain poorly constrained, with scientific understanding of uncertainties associated with radiative perturbations due to mineral dust classified as " very low" To advance understanding of the dust cycle, we present a...[Show more]
