Nitrate aerosols are expected to become more important in the future atmosphere due to the expected increase in nitrate precursor emissions and the decline of ammonium-sulphate aerosols in wide regions of this planet. The GISS climate model is used in this study, including atmospheric gas-and aerosol phase chemistry to investigate current and future (2030,(More)
We present the online calculated Earth's surface trace gas and aerosol emissions and dry deposition in the Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) submodel EMDEP as well as the currently applied anthropogenic and natural emissions inventories. These inventories, being read-in by the MESSy submodel OFFLEM, include the industrial, 5 fossil fuel, agricultural(More)
Introduction: Although once thought of as interesting but inconsequential desert oddities, dust devils are now understood to be a major contributor to airborne dust loading in the arid regions of Earth and Mars. The vortex process(es) responsible for soil erosion, however, remain poorly articulated. Dust devils have complex, intense, and highly variable(More)
