Abstract

This study investigates how dust deposition samplers affect the grain size characteristics of the sediment they catch. Some particle fractions are collected more efficiency than others, resulting in a modification of the original grain size distribution of the sediment. This paper presents wind tunnel results for 5 dust deposition samplers and 5 wind velocities. The catcher's effect on the grain size was apparent in all experiences
