A plume of dust and sand is moving towards Europe from the Sahara Desert. It will soon be over France and Spain.
Reported by the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service.
According to researchers, annually strong seasonal winds blow out more than 180 million tons of dust from sugar. These streams usually move across the Atlantic towards the United States, sometimes dust settles in Africa or is sent north.
According to the forecast of the Atmospheric Monitoring Service, most of the dust that reaches Europe in the coming days is likely to be concentrated over Spain and France and possibly reach Norway. Some parts of Spain may experience “mud rains”.
As the researchers noted, dust is not only harmful, and can degrade air quality and speed up snow melt. The Sahara plume also plays an important role in the Earth’s climate and biological systems, absorbing and reflecting solar energy, fertilizing ocean ecosystems with iron and other minerals needed by plants and phytoplankton.
We will remind, recently snow fell in the Sahara Desert.
We also wrote that artificial intelligence has found nearly two billion trees in the African Sahara Desert.
