We use the radiative transfer model and chemistry transport model to improve our retrievals of dust optical properties from satellite measurements. The optical depth and absorbing optical depth of mineral dust can be obtained from our improved retrieval algorithm. The solar radiative forcing of dust aerosols has also been calculated using refined optical model and radiative transfer model.
