Relationships between the dust concentrations over eastern Asia and the remote North Pacific
Date of Original Version
Dust storm reports as well as chemical data indicate that 1988 and 1989 were high-dust and low-dust years in eastern Asia, respectively. This pattern was not reflected in data from Midway, a remote island in the North Pacific, where the mineral aerosol concentrations during 1989 were as high as or higher than any year for which data are available. Analyses of meteorological data showed that the amount of precipitation, the strength of the westerly winds, and the position of large-scale meteorological features were related to the dust concentrations over eastern Asia. -from Authors
