Holocene fluvial valley fill sources of atmospheric mineral dust in the Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Abstract:

Western Namibia is a significant global source of atmospheric mineral dust. We investigate the relationship between dust and source sediments, assessing the sustainability of dust flux. Remote sensing studies (Vickery and Eckhardt, 2013) have highlighted specific ephemeral fluvial systems as important contributors to dust flux, including highlighting sections of valleys that are the origins of dust plumes in the period 2005-8. Little is known however about the specific within-valley dust sedi...
