Abstract

Dust blown from deserts is a common phenomenon in arid and semi-arid areas. Desert dust is often transported hundreds of kilometres and much of the finer material is carried thousands of kilometres. In the Sonoran Desert soils are very susceptible to deflation and great quantities of dust are transported locally by dust devils. (DLO).
