Ten years of aeolian dust dynamics in a desert region (Negev desert, Israel): analysis of airborne dust concentration, dust accumulation and the high-magnitude dust events



Ten years of aeolian dust dynamics in a desert region (Negev desert, Israel): analysis of airborne dust concentration, dust accumulation and the high-magnitude dust events



Journal of Arid Environments 47(2): 211-249



The Sede Boqer (northern Negev desert, Israel) data set for the period 1988- 1997 was analysed for systematic trends in the evolution of dust characteristics, and to see whether such trends can be correlated to the evolution of meteorological parameters (wind speed, wind direction, temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, rainfall and dust concentration) in the same period. Airborne dust concentration was greatest in spring and autumn and least in summer and winter.
