Science Daily – Soil Carbon “Blowing in the Wind”
I didn’t realize wind erosion was such a problem in Australia, but this article states that the soils there are losing around 1.6 million tons of carbon a year. And that the carbon particles swept up either falls back to the ground, are blown far away from Australia, or end up in the ocean. This could also happen in the US where windstorms occur or where there is a lot of agricultural activity. The Youtube video I added shows the dust storm mentioned in the article that was called the red wave.
