  Information - CL25 Aeolian dust as a player and recorder of environmental change (co-listed in SSP)

Event Information
In this session we would like to investigate the potential role of aeolian dust in global environmental change (past, modern, future), and address different approaches to study aeolian deposits, and discuss their palaeoclimate significance.
The formation, transport and deposition of dust is intimately coupled to and indicative of changes in global climate.
Records from continental ice sheets, loess, lacustrine and deep-sea sediments show that the timing of dust deposition and changes in dispersal patterns relate to both long-term and abrupt changes in the global hydrological cycle.

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
Francis Grousset (CNRS, Université Bordeaux I, France), and
Lu Huayu (State Key Laboratory of Loess and Quaternary Geology, Institute of Earth Environment, Chinese Academy of Science, Xi'an, China)
have already agreed to give a sollicited presentation, we are awaiting the response of other experts in the field.
