KAUST Research: Dust keeps the Red Sea cool

Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have discovered how dust from the Middle East has a positive cooling effect over the land and the Red Sea. Based on satellite data, scientists have found that the amount of dust over the Red Sea is greater than over the land, with the largest radiative cooling effect of the sea in the world. the researchers showed that the climatological dust radiative forcing over the southern Red Sea is the largest in the world and, for the first time, studied the role of its effects in the region.
