Abstract

Quantitative estimates are made of the effect of climate change upon dust activity during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), which peaked 18,000 years ago, using present-day measurements of the occurence of dust storms recalculated in the light of information on LGM climatic change. Dust storm seasons were lengthened and dust paths were modified. Estimates based upon climate alone, without considering the increased supplies of sediment to dust source areas during the LGM, however, probably underestimate LGM dust activity
