Aerosol time-series measurements over the tropical Northeast Atlantic Ocean: Dust sources, elemental composition and mineralogy
Description: In this study scientists continuously sampled aerosols between July 2007 and July 2008 at the Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory, which is situated on an island group close to the North African continent and under the Saharan/Sahelian dust outflow path. The aim of this work was to investigate temporal variations in aerosol concentration, composition and sources in the Cape Verde region over a complete seasonal cycle, and for this purpose they undertook mineralogical and chemical analyses of the aerosol samples and air mass back-trajectory calculations.
