Short summary
Atmospheric dust interacts with solar radiation, which influences the climate, with larger-sized particles having a heating effect, and smaller-sized particles having a cooling effect. Previous studies on long-range dust transport have found larger particles than expected, without a model to explain their transport. We find that sufficient electrostatic forces suspend more larger particles in the atmosphere and may help explain unexpected large particle transport.
