Sample text

In the case of a transition from hyperarid to arid conditions, accumulated weathering products would be flushed from the uplands by more effective fluvial processes, forming fan and channel deposits of relatively coarse, poorly sorted sediment. The storms responsible for the more frequent runoff might also increase the frequency of dust-transporting winds. The effects of changes from aridity to hyperaridity or aridity to semi-arid conditions would be opposite to those described. Repeated landscape instability resulting from rapid fluctuations from arid to relatively wetter conditions and vice versa would maximise the potential for a longterm high level of dust emission from deserts.

1981; Thompson and Mosley-Thompson, 1981) may correspond to maximum ice extent in Argentina. , 1981). If the stratigraphic and age interpretations are correct, this suggests that dust transport and loess accumulation in Soviet Central Asia has varied in response both to regional and global factors (Pye, 1987). At least in Europe and North America, there is strong evidence that large-scale dust transport during cold stages mainly reflected larger dust source areas and seasonal replenishment of the dust supply by glacial meltwaters, though the drier, windy nature of the glacial climate may also have contributed to the increased dust flux.
