What is Saharan dust?

The Saharan dusta phenomenon that travels the planet every year in the form of clouds, is expected in the country from mid-February.

Saharan dust is mainly composed of small mineral fragments rich in iron and phosphorus, nutrients that some land plants and phytoplankton need to grow. When the particles fall onto the ocean surface, they can function as fertilizer for photosynthesizing creatures, according to a review. National Geographic.

Passing through deforested areas of North Africa, the Saharan dust cloud also collects other particles such as bacteria, mercury, spores or pesticides, which can affect humans, indicates the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
