Short summary
Using observations and a regional climate model, we suggest that (i) dust radiative forcing over west Asia induces complex regional feedbacks on the Indian monsoon system, notably a possible enhancement of moisture convergence over southern India; and (ii) an observed AOD positive trend attributed to an increasing Arabian dust activity during 2000-2009 could be associated with, and contributing to, the observed enhancement of southern Indian summer precipitation during this decade.
Using observations and a regional climate model, we suggest that (i) dust radiative forcing...
