Abstract

The goals of the interaction between this group of scientists and those working in paleoclimatology and paleometeorology were: 1) to contribute to the understanding and development of methods of determining the shape and nature of particles that are transported by winds, 2) to develop methods which will allow paleoclimatologists to trace sedimentary material back to its source area and to describe the modifications it underwent on its transport path, and 3) to quantify mass fluxes of individual components being transported today — either chemical, mineralogical, or biogenic.
