Abstract: The relation between mass loss rate and pulsation period in carbon Miras is discussed. The dust mass loss rate is very low (about 2 x 10(-10) M./yr) up to about P = 380 days, where there is a sudden increase. For P > 400 days there is a linear relation between log M and P. The change in the mass loss rate near 380 days may be related to radiation pressure on dust becoming effective in driving the outflow.
