Transport of mineral dust
The Aerosol Optical Thickness due to mineral dust during a Saharan dust event in Europe from 14-03-22 to 19-03-22. The Aerosol Optical Thickness is a measure of the opacity of the atmosphere. Simulation performed by the German Weather Service.
SO2 cloud of the Raikoke eruption in June 2019, simulated with ICON-ART. The isosurface of a constant gas concentration of 100 µg per kg air is displayed in the animation.
Biomass burning aerosols
The animation shows the vertical integrated soot column of vegetation fires simulated with ICON-ART. The simulation starts at September 8th and lasts for seven days. There were severe vegetation fires in California, but also Central Africa and South America during that time period.
