Short summary
The mineral composition of dust aerosols is modeled. The mineral composition is derived by extending a method that provides the composition of wet-sieved soil to account for differences between the mineral fractions of the wet-sieved soil and the resulting aerosol concentration. An empirical constraint upon the relative emission of clay and silt is applied that further differentiates soil and aerosol mineral composition. A method is proposed for mixing minerals with iron oxide impurities.
The mineral composition of dust aerosols is modeled. The mineral composition is derived by...
