Comparison of magnetic particles in airborne dust on Mars and in the Harmattan dust from south of Sahara

Abstract

The magnetic properties experiments on the Mars Pathfinder mission indicate that Martian airborne dust is slightly magnetic. For purposes of comparison similar experiments on the magnetic properties of terrestrial airborne dust on the Earth have been performed at the University of Ghana. The main result of these experiments is that the airborne Harmattan dust in Ghana is substantially less magnetic than the dust suspended in the Martian atmosphere
