Abstract

There are many diverse records of eolian activity on land which can be used to study climate change including loess, lake sediments, the dust in glacial ice, and continental sedimentary deposits. While deposits representing the whole of geologic history are available for study, the workshop focussed on Pleistocene eolian material because it can be related to the factors controlling dust composition and injection and transport most reliably. The picture emerging from such studies of the atmospheric circulation is one of great complexity.
