SAL serves as a mechanism for increased atmospheric stability, which can be augmented by heating within the SAL dust layer by dust absorption of solar and infrared radiation, with dust thus acting to inhibit tropical cyclogenesis. Similarly, Reale et al. (2009 , 2011) found that dusty SAL intrusions into a developing tropical system increase atmospheric stability by inducing a heating dipole with warming aloft and cooling below due to absorption within the elevated dust layer. Evan et al
