Barren marine deserts bloom seasonally with iron infusions from Asian dust storms.
Chemical measurements of a stalagmite from a cave in Iran reveal a large uptick in dust activity in northern Mesopotamia roughly 4,200 years ago, coincident with the decline of the Akkadian Empire.
First International Conference on High Latitude Cold Climate Dust (HLCCD); Reykjavík, Iceland, 22–25 May 2017
A plume of water ice that escapes Saturn’s moon Enceladus should be coursing with electrical currents, but data are mixed. Now simulations suggest that a sticky dust cloud may shield signals.
Orbital wobbling shaped the dome of ice and dust at the planet's north pole.
Temperature readings acquired from orbit show that Mars's surface gets cold enough at night to allow layers of solid carbon dioxide frost up to several hundred micrometers thick to build up near the equator.
New computer simulations of Martian dust devils could aid Red Planet weather forecasts.
New observations and understanding of stratospheric particles are crucial for evaluating their role in climate change.
