Natural dust is often associated with hot, subtropical deserts, but significant dust events have been reported from cold climates and high latitudes. These have often been reported as ad hoc observations of individual events. Over the past ten years researchers at Loughborough University have been working with international colleagues to gain a more systematic understanding of dust emissions at high latitudes and to consider the global contribution and impact of these emissions in the terrestrial, marine, atmospheric and cryospheric systems of the Arctic and Antarctic. This talk outlines the evolution of our high latitude dust research and presents some of the main findings, challenges and opportunities for future research.

This talk is part of the British Antarctic Survey series.
