Our understanding of the global dust cycle is limited by a dearth of information about dust sources, especially small-scale features which could account for a large fraction of global emissions. Here we present a globalscale high-resolution (0.1 ) mapping of sources based on MODIS Deep Blue estimates of dust optical depth in conjunction with other data sets including land-use. We ascribe dust sources to natural and anthropogenic (primarily agricultural) origins, calculate their respective… CONTINUE READING
