Description :
This review provides a critical overview of recent studies of aeolian processes from within or on dust sources, and focuses on studies dealing with retrieval of dust emission data, quantification of the contribution and variability of dust emissions from specific landforms, and the use of remote sensing data to reconcile dust storm inventories by direct comparison to dust source geomorphology. These case studies highlight significant advances in both field measurement and regional understanding of important components of the dust cycle derived through use of remote sensing data. However, for strategies aimed at inclusion of dust emission schemes at a scale relevant to climate models, additional research is needed to increase the quantification of a wider range of dust source types and geomorphological contexts over longer time periods.
