Aeolian Dust and Dust Deposits by Kenneth Pye

By Kenneth Pye

Aeolian airborne dirt and dust and dirt Deposits explores the entrainment, dispersion, and deposition of aeolian airborne dirt and dust and mud deposits, with emphasis on delivery and deposition of dirt derived by means of deflation of floor sediments and soils. themes coated variety from the mechanisms of fine-particle formation to dirt resources, sinks, and premiums of deposition. Dust-transporting wind platforms also are mentioned, besides the grain measurement, mineralogy, and chemical composition of aeolian dust.

Comprised of 9 chapters, this ebook starts with an outline of the final nature and value of windborne airborne dirt and dust in addition to the significance of aeolian airborne dirt and dust and loess. the subsequent bankruptcy offers with the mechanisms underlying the formation of good debris, together with glacial grinding, frost and salt weathering, and fluvial comminution. The reader is then brought to airborne dirt and dust entrainment, delivery, and deposition, including dirt resources, sinks, and charges of deposition. next chapters specialise in the consequences of dirt deflation, shipping, and deposition; dirt deposition within the oceans; and loess distribution and the thickness and morphology of loess deposits.

This monograph is written basically for learn employees and complicated scholars in sedimentology, geomorphology, and Quaternary reviews, yet is usually more likely to be of price to soil scientists, meteorologists, planetary geologists, engineers, and others concerned about environmental management.
