Short summary
Satellite data show that Indian summer monsoon (ISM) rainfall is closely associated with Middle East dust aerosols. Numerical modeling shows that the increased ISM rainfall is related to the enhanced southwesterly flow and moisture transport from the Arabian Sea to the Indian subcontinent, associated with the development of an anomalous low-pressure system over the Iranian Plateau and the Arabian Sea due to dust-induced atmospheric heating.
