Short summary
This study simulated the distribution of dust aerosols originating within the Tibetan Plateau (TP) and their radiative effects on the East Asian summer monsoon (EASM). The results showed that direct radiative cooling in the mid-troposphere induced by the TP locally produced dust aerosols resulted in the weakening of the EASM. Although contribution to the total Asian dust source from within TP is relatively small, its impacts on Asian monsoon and climate seems disproportionately large.
