About this book

Explores how deserts are formed, how they change, and their environmental importance, drawing on extensive research from the deserts of South Africa, North America, India, Northern Europe and Australia.

The book is well written and well organized, relatively thorough in its coverage, and free of serious errors. Figures and photographs are generally of high quality. An important resource for geomorphologists, sedimentologists, and other scientists interested in eolian processes and deposits..
