A combined modeling and measurement technique for estimating wind-blown dust emissions at Owens (dry) Lake, CA. Gillette, D. A., Ono, D., & Richmond, K. Journal of Geophysical Research, 2004.
abstract   bibtex   
The problem of dust emissions from playa sources is an important one both in terms of human health and in terms of global dust issues, distribution of loess, and mineral cycling. A refined method of modeling atmospheric dust concentrations due to wind erosion was developed using real-time saltation flux measurements and ambient dust monitoring data at Owens Lake, California. This modeling method may have practical applications for modeling the atmospheric effects of wind erosion in other areas. The modeling results were used to identify 77 km$^{\textrm{2}}$ of dust-producing areas on the lake bed that will be controlled to attain the federal air quality standard for PM$_{\textrm{10}}$.
