Model code and tools associated with "The Influence of Simulated Surface Dust Lofting and Atmospheric Loading on Radiative Forcing"
This high-resolution numerical modeling study investigates the potential range of impact of surface-lofted dust aerosols on the mean radiative fluxes and temperature changes associated with a dust lofting episode over the Arabian Peninsula (2-5 August 2016). Assessing the potential for lofted dust to impact the radiation budget and temperature response in regions of the world that are prone to intense dust storms is important due to the impact of such temperature perturbations on thermally driven mesoscale circulations such as sea-breezes and convective outflows. As such, sensitivity simulations ...
