Emission of Fine-Grained Particulates from Desert Soils
During the past decade, considerable interest has been focused on the emission, transport, deposition and climatological effects of natural and anthropogenic aerosols (e.g. Gillette, et al., 1982; 1978; Deluisi, et al., 1977; Péwé, 1981). Several studies have also considered the effects of mass particle concentration on light extinction (Pilat and Ensor, 1971), climate (Idso and Brazel, 1974), human health hazards (Leathers, 1981), visibility (Patterson and Gillette, 1977b) and ambient air quality (Hagen and Woodruff, 1973). In addition, a large volume of literature has been developed on the atmospheric, textural and surface conditions which interact to produce atmospheric aerosols.
