Short summary
We present a modeling study on the impacts of the key processes (dust emission flux, convection and dust aging parameterizations) that control the transatlantic dust transport using an advanced version of the EMAC atmospheric chemistry general circulation model. We define the direct effect of dust aging as an increase in the AOD as a result of hygroscopic growth. We define the indirect effect as a reduction in the dust AOD due to the higher removal of the aged dust particles.
