Short summary
This study presents the first desert dust (DD) long-term inventory simultaneously using columnar aerosol optical depth (AOD) and the Ångström exponent and surface particulate-matter (PM) concentrations. The DD contribution to the aerosol load is evaluated in the period 2003–2014 for columnar and surface data, analysing the correlation between DD contributions to AOD and PM10. Saharan mineral dust can explain up to 30 % of the total aerosol load decrease observed in the study area.
