Abstract

Observation from an automatic weather station and anemograph network are used in conjunction with recorded dust deposition rates to identify principle sources of wind blown dust within an alpine lake basin. Meteorological observations made throughout the study indicate that foehn windstorms provide ideal conditions for the initiation of aeolian processes, including dust storm genesis. Potential dust roses were determined for 2 sites within the lake basin
