The stability of electrostatic charge on suspended particles over long timescales
Windblown dust is transported across continental distances in Earth’s atmosphere and plays critical roles in numerous geophysical and biological systems. For particles larger than a few microns,
The lifetime of charged dust in the atmosphere
Windblown dust plays critical roles in numerous geophysical and biological systems, yet current models fail to explain the transport of coarse-mode particles (¿5 µ m) to great distances from their
