to the 9th International Conference on Aeolian Research

Join us for 5 days of discussions and excursions in arid landscapes



a forum for scientists, land managers and policy makers to discuss the latest developments in wind erosion research and management
Issues relating to agriculture, rangelands, coastal regions, and the impacts of dust on human health, climate and ecosystems

Who will be there?

This is the 9th International Conference on Aeolian Research (ICAR) and typically attracts more than 150 delegates from Australia, Europe, North and South America, Japan and China.

The importance of aeolian research

Aeolian (wind) erosion and dust storms play a key role in environmental systems. Around 2000 million tons of dust is eroded and emitted into the atmosphere every year. The dust represents a substantial loss of topsoil and nutrients from the Earth’s agricultural lands, rangelands and deserts.

Societies face great challenges to manage increasing wind erosion and dust storms, driven by land use pressures, drought and climate change. The Conference will stimulate ideas and facilitate collaboration across political and environmental boundaries to build understanding and find new solutions.

About the ICAR conference series

ICAR is the biennial International Conference on Aeolian Research. The ICAR conferences are run by the International Society for Aeolian Research (ISAR), a not-for-profit society to promote the interaction of aeolian research community.
