Short summary
Mineral dust is an important sink for sulfur dioxide that can be oxidized and further influence the acidification of particles as well as cloud formation. In this study, a model was developed to capture the importance of mineral dust on sulfate formation in various environments. The results suggest that the oxidation of sulfur dioxide is greatly promoted in the presence of dust particles. Our model is helpful to enhance the accuracy of sulfate formation predicted.
