"Haboob" is one of my favorite words. And there was a doozy the other day that blanketed Phoenix, AZ:
I wonder, what is the long-term preservation potential for these kinds of storms? Also, are there analogous subaqueous density-driven sediment flows? Could you get bouma sequences in a haboob?
Ooh, there's a sentence, "Bouma Bedforms Born by Big, Beautiful Haboobs."
That is the first time I've heard that word said out loud outside of a physical sedimentology lecture.
