Road ecology blog: Coal trucks hauling coal to the Chinese border, Gobi, Mongolia

Road ecology blog: Coal trucks hauling coal to the border and dust, between Tsagaan khad (White Rock) and Gashuun-Sukhait, Gobi, Mongolia. The trucks generate a lot of dust as they drive on gravel roads or off road through the Gobi. Most trucks avoid the parallel paved toll-road to avoid the toll and because they tend to be overloaded (there are weigh stations along the toll road). Part of the coal route bisects the Small Gobi B strictly protected area, just north of the border with China.
