Information - GM7.1 Aeolian Landforms and Processes
The study of aeolian dunes and wind-blown sand is a dynamic and vibrant field of geomorphological research, with many innovative and interdisciplinary lines of inquiry ranging from fluid dynamics and particle mechanics to planetary remote sensing (on Earth as well as extra-terrestrial) and field experimentation. Novel instrumentation and experimental techniques yield unprecedented insights into the physical processes of aeolian sediment transport – be it sand or dust – while numerical modelling, field monitoring, and remote sensing allow us to investigate the evolution and behaviour of ripples and dune landscapes over long time scales. Aeolian geomorphology is conducted in many different science disciplines and this session aims to bring together research results from a variety of approaches and backgrounds to improve our understanding of process and form in aeolian systems. Innovative contributions are sought on topics from across the whole spectrum of aeolian geomorphology over the full range of spatial and temporal scales of investigation.
