Atmospheric mechanisms of central Saharan dust storm formation in boreal summer: observations from the Fennec campaign

Abstract:

In boreal summer, satellite measurements show that the central Sahara is the dustiest region of the planet. However, ground-based observations of the central Sahara have been limited to its outer edges, leaving a void in observations approximately 1 million km2 in area. The Fennec Project has been the first campaign to instrument this remote but climatologically important region. This thesis uses these new observations to detect and explain the atmospheric mechanisms that make t...
