Short summary
Saharan dust wet deposited in Granada (Spain) on 21–23 February 2017 during the most extreme red rain event of the last decades led to the deposition of ~ 140 000 T of dust just in the city of Granada, dwarfing any other standard Saharan dust events taking place in the area. The multianalytical study of Saharan dust disclosed potential source areas and the mineralogy and composition of the size fractions of desert dust as well as its potential biogeochemical, radiative, and health effects.
