Short summary
This study is aimed at quantifying the fine-scale structure of dust emission from the western coastal plain of the Arabian Peninsula. Using the high-resolution modeling tools and up-to-date satellite inventories, we simulate and analyze the spatial and temporal variability of dust generation. The estimate of total dust emission from the coastal plain is 7.5 ± 0.5 Mt per year. We show that the study area is a stable dust generation zone and a potential source of mineral nutrients for the Red Sea.
