A GRANDMOTHER is fighting for her life after being choked by a freak Saharan dust
The cocktail of emissions, Saharan dust
and good weather meant the West Midlands was among those parts of the UK expecting a higher increase in its air pollution levels.
The region, along with Greater London, is experiencing high pollution levels as pollutants from local sources such as traffic fumes trapped near the ground combine with dirty air blown from the continent and a small amount of Saharan dust
The problem was caused by a build-up of pollutants from local sources such as traffic fumes which are not dispersing in the still weather, combined with dirty air blown from the continent and a small amount of Saharan dust
What we do have is some Saharan dust
joining some pollution in the South East.
This is due to a combination of pollutants trapped near the ground, a light south-easterly flow bringing additional pollutants from the continent and, in addition, a small amount of Saharan dust
in the air.
Scientists from a UK university who mapped the nutrient content in the Atlantic found that plants grow in the region because of the minerals carried in Saharan dust
He plans to look for chemical fingerprints in Saharan dust
that can prove the Bahamian iron's African origins.
The same noxious mix of Saharan dust
and urban air-pollution sources affected other parts of Europe, too.
The teeming rain mixed with strange red Saharan dust
didn't encourage people to leave their homes and the place was quiet when we arrived - just a few people having a drink in the comfortable lounge bar, which meant we had the dining room to ourselves.
No 3 states: "Researchers have linked Saharan dust
to coral disease".
LIVING in London I'm surprised that I'm still alive, such is the scaremongering over the Saharan dust
cloud over the city.
