I understand from the proprietary make_dust matlab file in crocotools that the dust data comes from the IRI/LDEO Climate Data Library (Atlas of Surface Marine Data 1994)
This data provides for climatological input of atmospheric dust.
I am surprised to see that there is no obvious dataset at the above url corresponding to atmospheric dust deposition. I was hoping upon interrogation of the website to find a way to access an underlying daily/monthly dataset that would have been used to generate the climatology, thus allowing interannual variations to be covered in my PISCES model.
I am wondering however about the possibility of daily/monthly reanalysis atmospheric dust deposition, instead of climatology?
Do PISCES users know of a different source for atmospheric dust deposition that is resolved to daily or monthly timescale over the long-term?
Looking forward to hearing back from the community
