Abstract

The AA. have studied the generation of dust storms on the south sand sheet of Owens (dry) Lake, an anthropogenically dessicated playa reported to be the single greatest source of particulate matter in North America. During March 1993, they performed an intensive field study including 8 significant dust storms. They studied sources and magnitude of coarse saltating particles, the meteorological conditions that allow them to become mobile, and how the motion of saltating particles across different types of playa surfaces results in the generation of PM[10] dusts (aerosol particles smaller than 10 μm aerodynamic diameter)
