The purpose of this project was to develop a synoptic analysis for the causes of the SAL dust particulate that was injected into the atmosphere and transported long distances during the AEROSE campaigns. The HYSPLIT model was employed to assist with identifying potential surface sources of the desert dust and source regions of relevant air masses. The NOGAPS model was employed for comparisons of observed and predicted dust and smoke concentration over the Atlantic Ocean.
