Saharan and Asian dust, biological particles end global journey in California

UCSD, NOAA study is the first to show that dust and other aerosols from one side of the world influence rainfall in another

A field study of aerosol impacts on clouds and precipitation in the Sierra Nevada mountains shows that dust and microorganisms transported from as far away as the Sahara desert help to spur the precipitation that California counts on for its water supply.
