Short summary
Sulfate and nitrate in dust particles at a desert site and a 700 km downwind urban site in China were compared. The production of the two salts during the transport of dust particles was limited because of the adiabatic process of the dust-loading air movement. Significant sulfate and nitrate previously reported in dust-associated samples were very likely from locally emitted and urban aerosols or soil-derived particles rather than the products of chemical reactions on desert dust particles.
