Description :
This study is expected to provide an insight into the rate of soil-forming processes in various unconsolidated sediments, ranging from almost pure sand (97% at the dune crest) to 50-60% silt and clay at the playa surfaces. A significant factor which might influence pedogenic processes is runoff generation over the crusted flanks of the dune, and its effect on the non-uniform redistribution of soil-catenary water infiltration.
