NASA visualized the aerosol distribution of this planet based on the data of satellites such as Aqua, Terra, Suomi NPP, etc. In the visualization, the storms are visible within giant swirls of sea salt aerosol (blue), black carbon particles (red) are among the particles emitted by fires, vehicles and factories, and dust (purple) are eminent especially in the desert area.

An aerosol is a suspension of fine solid particles or liquid droplets, in air or another gas, and they can be found in the air over oceans, deserts, mountains, forests, ice, and every ecosystem in between. The size particles vary from 10nm to 1mm.
