Thirteen years of aeolian dust dynamics in a desert region (Negev desert, Israel): analysis of horizontal and vertical dust flux, vertical dust distribution and dust grain size



Thirteen years of aeolian dust dynamics in a desert region (Negev desert, Israel): analysis of horizontal and vertical dust flux, vertical dust distribution and dust grain size



Journal of Arid Environments 57(1): 117-140



At Sede Boqer (northern Negev desert, Israel), aeolian dust dynamics have been measured during the period 1988-2000. This study focuses on temporal records of the vertical and horizontal dust flux, the vertical distribution of the dust particles in the atmosphere, and the grain size of the particles. This study extends results reported earlier on the characteristics of the airborne dust concentration, the accumulation of dust on the desert floor, and the high-magnitude dust events.
