Comment on ''Observing desert dust devils with a pressure logger" by Lorenz (2012) – insights on measured pressure fluctuations from large-eddy simulations

Abstract. Lorenz et al. (2012) proposes to use pressure loggers for long-term field measurements in terrestrial deserts. The dataset obtained through this method features both pressure drops (reminiscent of dust devils) and periodic convective signatures. Here we use large-eddy simulations to provide an explanation for those periodic convective signatures and to argue that pressure measurements in deserts have broader applications than monitoring dust devils.
