Abstract Dust storms frequently occur in deserts or poorly vegetated areas and long-range dust transport inevitably enhances deposition of exogenous biological particles, often associated to inorganic-organic aggregates. During winter, alien biological particles associated to large dust events may be deposit .. [more]
