Short summary
Asian dust has been reported at remote destinations, such as North America. However, the relative contribution of the Taklamakan and Gobi deserts, the major Asian dust sources, remains unaddressed in observation. Here, satellite observations of dust plume characteristics and trajectory modeling suggest latitude-dependent influence of dust from the two deserts, with Taklamakan dust dominantly affecting areas south of 50° N and Gobi dust primarily affecting areas north of 50° N in North America.
