Atmospheric particulates (also called aerosols) are microscopic particles of solids or liquids that are suspended in a gas - think of dust motes floating in a sunbeam. There are many natural sources of atmospheric particulates: dust blown into the air by the wind, salts splashed into the air by sea spray, and soots from volcanoes and forest fires.
