Summary
Abstract: Dust samples taken annually for five years from 55 sites in southern Nevada and
California provide an unparalleled source of information on modern rates of
dust deposition, grain size, and mineralogical and chemical composition. The
relations of modern dust to climatic factors, type and lithology of dust
source, and regional wind patterns shed new light on the processes of ... View entire text

Quality Samples were obtained from the dust traps by carefully washing the marbles,
screen, and pan with distilled water into plastic liter bottles. In the
laboratory, the sample was gradually dried at about 35C in large evaporating
dishes; coarse organic material is removed during this process. Subsequent
