Short summary
Anthropogenic dust emissions induced by livestock trampling were measured using a mini wind tunnel device in Mongolian temperate grassland. A scale factor in dust emissions revealed an enhanced effect of trampling on dust emissions. The enhancement rate in dust emissions was enlarged by increased friction velocity. Our results emphasize that better livestock management is crucial to prevent dust loads by reducing the effect of trampling on dust emissions in dust seasons driven by strong winds.
