Chinese deserts and sand fields in Last Glacial Maximum and Holocene Optimum
The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, c. 26-16 ka) and the Holocene Optimum (HO, c. 9-5 ka) were characterized by cold-dry and warm-wet climates respectively in the recently geological Earth. How ChineseExpand

Sand dunes as potential sources of dust in northern China
While saltation bombardment of sand grains on a fine substrate can produce considerable dust, the well-sorted nature of sand dunes tends to preclude them from consideration as major dust sources.Expand
