Short summary
This paper provides important insights on dust emission from sand dunes, which cover a large fraction of arid lands; produces the first in situ measurements for size-resolved dust emission from active sands that could improve the representation of dust cycle in climate models and remote sensing techniques; and shows that dust from active sands is likely significantly finer than thought, implying a greater effect of dust emission from active sands on downwind climate, hydrology, and human health.
