The project that produced these data involved the analysis and modeling of atmospheric Asian dust particles and background marine air particles collected in Hawaii, USA at the Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Individual heterogeneous dust particles were analyzed with focused ion-beam scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Three-dimensional spatial and composition models of the particles from focused ion-beam tomography were used in the calculation of optical properties by the discrete dipole approximation method with incident light at 589 nm. Optical properties included the phase function, extent of linear polarization, scattering, backscattering, and extinction cross sections, and the backscatter fraction. In addition, the project involved optical property calculations for particles as geometric shapes with volumes equivalent to those of the MLO particles. Shapes modeled for each particle included spher...
