Holocene Dust Dynamics

Eds: De Vleeschouwer F, Stuut J-BW & Lambert F

The Holocene, vol. 30(4), 489-596, 2020

This Special Issue is partly an outcome from discussions held at the PAGES DICE working group workshop at Las Cruces, Chile, in January 2018. The aim of the Special Issue is to contribute to a better understanding of the role of dust aerosols by analysing the evolution and climatic impact of atmospheric dust over long and short timescales within the Holocene.
