Short summary
This work focus on the distribution of dust particles emitted in western Africa and having consequences on human health and marine ecosystems. The understanding of their fate requires a better understanding of the processes governing their variability. Using satellite observations and ground measurements, we present the seasonality of their distribution and explain the processes responsible for this distribution as well as their transition from the African continent towards the Atlantic Ocean.
