Size-structured mineral dust aerosols and associated radiative effects produced by four different atmospheric transport models. The study draws on observational data on dust abundance, in situ measurements of dust optical properties and size distribution, and climate and atmospheric chemical transport model simulations of atmospheric dust concentrations.
