"Have we got Dust All Wrong?" An EOS News Article on ReACT Team's research efforts


"Have We Got Dust All Wrong?

Scientists are challenging conventional notions of how dust particles are aligned; “everything we’ve so far hypothesized about the impact of dust on the atmosphere might be misplaced.”

The “Godzilla” Saharan dust plume that clouded over parts of the United States in June 2020 created a lot of talk and a lot of magnificent sunsets. Dust is an intriguing type of matter, vital for the formation of clouds and precipitation. We also know that if enough dust gathers in the atmosphere, it can block solar radiation. But what if some of these dust-related assumptions were slightly dusty—or completely wrong?

Members of the Remote Sensing of Aerosols, Clouds and Trace Gases (ReACT) team are trying to find out..."
