Abstract:
The data shows atmospheric dust concentrations and deposition fluxes over the Atlantic Ocean, along a transect at 12 degrees north.
The data includes deposition fluxes and grain sizes (modal grain size and grain-size distributions) of submarine sediment traps at five stations (M1 - M5), dust concentrations and sizes of dust-collecting surface buoys at two of the stations (M3 and M4), including MWAC (Modified Wilson and Cooke) passive air samplers also attached to both buoys. The combined data covers (part of) the years 2012-2016.
