  • Summary Entrainment, transport and deposition of dust in and around deserts has major geological implications. A consideration of the mechanics of dust transport and deposition shows that ‘desert loess’ can only accumulate in vegetated desert fringe areas which are relatively close to a major source of dust. Dust deposition can also contribute to the stabilization of active sand dunes, and infiltrated dust plays an important role in the early diagenesis of a wide range of desert sediments.
