Aeolian deposition of dust over hills : the effect of dust grain size on the deposition pattern

Auteur :
GOOSSENS, D.

Description :
Wind tunnel experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of topography on the grain size characteristics of aeolian dust deposits. Experiments were performed on 3 isolated hills having various size and aspect ratios. The longitudinal profile of the median grain diameter was investigated for each hill. The wind tunnel experiments show that the grain size characteristics of aeolian dust deposits are affected by topography.
