Abstract

Rain water was sampled in the Negev Desert, Israel for the past six years. Events with relatively high amounts of sulfate were detected and studied for their chemical, isotopic and synoptic features. It was found that sulfate‐rich rain events were usually enriched with respect to the median isotopic value for the area δ 18O (‰) (relative to SMOW) and were associated with dust storms and a continental direction of surface winds prior to the rain event. 1985 Blackwell Munksgaard
