These figures were based solely on the westward transport of Saharan dust. In this study estimates on the dust transport to the eastern Mediterranean are provided. The data were obtained from several studies concerned with dust storms in Israel including: ground and airborne particle mass concentration, vertical profiles, dust storm trajectories, particle deposition… CONTINUE READING
