Publication of the paper “Impacts of Desert Dust Outbreaks on Air Quality in Urban Areas”
  The journal Atmosphere has published a new study “Impacts of Desert Dust Outbreaks on Air Quality in Urban Areas”. In this study we investigate the influence of desert dust outbreaks on air quality in Santa Cruz de Tenerife using air-quality observations and data of the vertical structure of the atmosphere from a six-year period (2012–2017). The most active global dust source regions are located in a broad band or “dust belt” extending from the west coast of North Africa through the Middle East to central Asia (Figure 1). More...
