Short summary
The study is on the mineralogical, chemical and physical properties of surface soil samples from the Arabian Red Sea coastal plain. The sampled sites were previously identified to be potential source areas for windblown mineral dust. Results from this study will improve dust transport and other types of modeling, and also provide a better assessment of the impact of coastal dust on the Red Sea.
