I don't know about evaporation, but getting your particulate matter in the jet stream certainly makes it hard to know where it is going to land. The
US west coast gets it share of Chinese desert dust and city pollution. Vegas smog is partially from LA.
I can dig up the paper if you are interested, but the DOE did a study near the ET Highway (Queen CIty Summit) where they could determine the source of
particular radioactive matter. That is, they could determine if it came from a NTS bomb or the Soviets.
When you want something to from a plane to reach the ground, you fly low. Crop dusting looks dangerous low, maybe 100ft. The medfly plane (N32P) I
wasted time investigating (including staking out the airport) dropped it's flies in the few thousand ft range.
I've got a book called "Meteors and Meteorites" (Martin Beech). In it he lists a procedure for collecting meteor dust. It falls to earth all the
time. It is called skydust, but the word has been totally munged on the internet.
