Short summary
The characteristics of urban dust aerosols are of substantial sociopolitical and economic concern. We find that atmospheric dustfall in Xi'an exhibits significant seasonal variations, with a maximum in spring and minimum in autumn. The atmospheric dustfall of Xi'an mainly originates from natural dust sources in East Asia and local anthropogenic sources. Distal natural dust and local anthropogenic dust have different magnetic, morphological, and elemental characteristics.
