1) The existence of very large particles far away from sources is a well known phenomenon since a long time. Mineral particles as large as 100 μm have been found more than 1000 km from the Saharan desert over the Atlantic Ocean (Jaenicke, R., C. Junge, H.J. Kanter (1971): Messungen der Aerosolgrößenverteilung über dem Atlantik. Meteor Forschungsergebnisse B7, 1-54. Even if it is in German and not available on the internet, that is literature). It is not needed to postpone mother natures laws… CONTINUE READING
