Abstract

Aeolian processes, involving erosion, transportation, and deposition of sediment by the wind, occur in a variety of environments, including the coastal zone, and cold and hot semiarid and arid regions, along the borders of rivers and lakes, as well as over agricultural fields in many climates. The chapters in this volume reflect the diversity of approaches and methods in aeolian geomorphology. These include, but are not limited to, field studies and measurements of processes and landforms; experimental studies of processes (especially sediment transport) in laboratory wind tunnels; use of remote sensing data to document landforms and processes in inaccessible areas (including planetary surfaces); and numerical modeling of processes at all scales.
