Short summary
To understand the contribution of anthropogenic dust to the total global dust load, a new technique for distinguishing anthropogenic dust from natural dust is proposed by using CALIPSO dust measurements and PBL height retrievals along with a land use data set. Results reveal that local anthropogenic dust aerosol accounts for about 25% of the global continental dust load.
