About the book

The Arctic is characterized by strangely eroded rocks, special wind-formed lakes, large sand dunes and immense loess deposits that owe their formation to aeolian processes controlled by snow cover and frost formation. Wind as a Geomorphic Agent in Cold Climates presents a detailed description and explanation of these wind-generated polar landforms. It includes numerous illustrations and photographs that will assist the reader in identifying and interpreting these features: both modern-day and those preserved in the geological record from earlier glacial periods. Unlike most aeolian geomorphology texts, which do not cover the high-latitude regions north and south of 60 degrees, this volume brings together important information from scattered literature sources concerning these cold environments.
