Short summary
Sand and dust emission are usually investigated by wind-tunnel experiments. However, wind-tunnel flows are usually neutrally stratified without large eddies, which typically develop in the convective atmospheric boundary layer. Here we proposed a novel technique by deploying a piece of randomly fluttering cloth in a wind tunnel to generate the large eddies and found them to enhance the entrainment of sand and dust particles, which explains why large eddies are important to aeolian entrainment.
