Title: Modeling dust emission: insights and challenges
Abstract: By nature, dust models cannot predict dust emission perfectly, because they cannot resemble the land-surface, or the atmosphere, in all detail. However, in comparison with observations, differences obtained from model experiments can provide insights into aspects of modeled dust emission which are more or less uncertain. Here I will present results from using a dust modeling “laboratory”.

Title: Combining satellite observations, field experiments and model simulation to investigate the atmospheric dust cycle
Abstract: Mineral dust aerosol is a major contributor to the atmospheric aerosol burden. Knowledge on the life-cycle of atmospheric dust is crucial for understanding various aerosol-atmosphere interactions including these on the Earth’s radiation budget, cloud and precipitation formation processes, and bio-productivity ultimately modulating the carbon cycle and human wellbeing. The presentation will discuss results from research that makes complementary use of satellite data, field experiments and numerical modelling in order to improve our understanding of the atmospheric dust cycle, which is inevitable for assessing the climate system and its variability.
