Along with marine aerosols, mineral dust from deserts is one of the largest sources of aerosols in the atmosphere. Dust is typically comprised of a variety of minerals, each with different light-scattering properties, making it hard to determine their impact on climate. While large dust particles often settle quickly back to earth, intense dust storms can inject particles high into the atmosphere, where fast-blowing winds can carry them thousands of miles in a short time.
