In context, that's a pretty good name for a zero-visibility sandstorm. Perhaps the name originated from a colonist who was born in Sweden, and the word 'caparnawallah' originated with a colonist from Australia (which is amusing in and of itself, that old colonies like the US and Oz are founding colonies of their own, just like Mama Britannia).
When Mars is colonized in RL, someone needs to carry these ideas out there.
"They planned their campaigns just as you might make a splendid piece of harness. It looks very well; and answers very well; until it gets broken; and then you are done for. Now I made my campaigns of ropes. If anything went wrong, I tied a knot; and went on."
-- Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington
