confused[edit]

The article seems to be a bit confused about what a Zud actually is - is it one snowstorm, or several snowstorms, or a particularly hard winter? Also some of the other statements seem a bit dountful: Zud even more deadly because there are no mountains in the steppe - I used to think winter encampments are usually located in especially wind-protected places, and this "no mountains" is really not true for at least some of the areas that have been hit by bad winters in the past. Relief by airplane and helicopter - does the Mongolian state still own helicopters, and use them for such a purpose? Would not cars be more useful in most situations anyway?

Also it might be worth mentioning that string of zuds between 1999 and 2002 (?). Yaan (talk) 10:33, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

An article of Mongolian wiki on "white zud", which has been deleted in the beginning of 2011, tells of a the "storm zud" (shuuran zud") as a fourth kind of zud, beneath black zud, white zud, and ice zud.--Ulamm (talk) 13:02, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

  • There does seem to be a lack of clarity about the categories of zuds - probably because the terms come from colloquial experience. In any case, I fixed the definition for black zud, and added more content based on multiple reliable sources. Bigdan201 (talk) 07:10, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Pronounciation and Cyrillic spelling of "Khurjun"[edit]

What is the pronounciation and Cyrillic spelling of "Khurjun?

  • I looked for it in Mongolian online dictionaries, in vain.
  • By Google research, it is a Turkistan saddle bag.--Ulamm (talk) 12:57, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Rename[edit]

"Zud" is also a brand of abrasive cleanser, popular in the U.S. for really bad stains. See [1]. Anyone object if I rename to Zud (Mongolia)? Coretheapple (talk) 14:24, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
