Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of lithogenic flux and grain size data from four
sediment trap moorings deployed perpendicularly to the coast of the Arabian
Peninsula (~200 to 1250 km offshore, ~1000 to 3100 meters below the sea
surface). Data record the lithogenic response to a full seasonal cycle of
dust transport associated with the Asian monsoon circulation. Measurements
were made on an Elzone 280PC particle size analyzer.
