    Re: Air Particulates

    Interesting, but really not that impactfull. As they point out, the error is so large in the study that the only conclusions that can be drawn are qualitative. And the particulate transported is mostly dust. From a regulatory and public health perspective this makes it much less impactfull. Dust is comprised of larger particles (coarse), which have less impact on health and less stringent standards than fine particles. So the take away is a lot of dust blows across the Pacific and reaches the west coast.

    And for how long has this been happening to some extent? Since before Europeans settled in North America I would imagine. It suddenly is a problem since we can now take a stab at quantifying it?
