Nature and source of aeolian deposits near the summit of Ben Arkle, northwest Scotland

Auteurs :
PYE, K.
PAINE, A. D. M.

Description :
An extensive blanket of white sandy silt consists of recent windtransported material derived from frost-weathered quartzite regolith. Much of the weathered debris may have formed during the last Glacial period. Current aeolian reworking of the formerly-vegetated may be due to a slight climatic deterioration or to grazing by animals introduced since the late 19th century. (AIS).
