About this book

Covers the full range of the effects of the wind on Earth's surface landforms, not only in hot deserts but also on coastlines, in cold polar environments, and wherever aeolian processes are significant. The most familiar features and processes - dust storms, soil erosion by wind, sand dunes and loess - are covered in full detail. The authors also discuss the activity of wind in the past, as well as contemporary environmental hazards caused by the wind's interaction with the solid Earth.
