Description :
Here, the AA. show that an external dust supply is also an important dust contributor to the sand desert, and that dust emission from the sand desert will occur if an external dust supply is available and diminish if the external supply is cut off. Their results relate the dust emission from sand deserts to an external dust supply resulting from disturbed processes or changed hydrological processes caused by climate changes or human activities, and also suggest that the dust emission rate of natural sand deserts can actually increase with external dust supply resulting from human activities or climatic changes, rather than with wind energy alone, as is commonly perceived.
