Huang, Yue; Jasper, Kok F.; Martin, Raleigh L.; Swet, Nitzan; Katra, Itzhak; Gill, Thomas E.; Reynolds, Richard L.; Freire, Livia S.;

<p>Sand dunes and other active sands generally have a low content of fine grains and, therefore, are not considered to be major dust sources in current climate models. However, recent remote sensing studies have indicated that a surprisingly large fraction of dust storm... View more
