Wind erosion is a dominant geomorphological process in arid landscapes. Its effects contribute to the loss of soil resources and the emission of mineral dust, with major impacts on regional climate, biogeochemical cycles and human health. As an aside, ’desertification’ may sound like a course to end a sumptuous meal. But with just one ’s’, it refers to fertile land becoming dry desert. Many factors contribute to the problem, such as soil erosion, climate change and groundwater mismanagement.
