Uncovering Global Dust-Climate Connections
A new global weather station-based dataset developed at Michigan Technological University enables long-term, large-scale monitoring of the dust cycle. As wind shapes the surface of the Earth, it pulls dust from dry, exposed land surfaces into the atmosphere. Xin Xi, an assistant professor in the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences at Michigan Tech, uses observations and models to study the sources, transformation and transport of dust to assess its impact on climate and air quality.
