Fortran: Module Interface DUSTMod (Source File: DUSTMod.F90)

Routines in this module calculate Dust mobilization and dry deposition for dust. Simulates dust mobilization due to wind from the surface into the lowest atmospheric layer. On output flx_mss_vrt_dst(ndst) is the surface dust emission (kg/m**2/s) [ + = to atm]. Calculates the turbulent component of dust dry deposition, (the turbulent deposition velocity through the lowest atmospheric layer). CAM will calculate the settling velocity through the whole atmospheric column. The two calculations will determine the dust dry deposition flux to the surface.
