I recently mentioned dust in a previous post entitled North to South and so when this article came up, I thought why not? As the article mentions, dust plays an important role in our environment.
The article is entitled “Dust in the Wind: How Data Visualization Can Help the Environment” by Willie Shubert over at Scientific American. There’s also a great video from NASA on the journey of dust from the Sahara Desert across the Atlantic Ocean.
Speaking of dust, I think I have some in my left eye so let me just say good night and sweet dreams!
