By Kenneth Pye, N. Lancaster

Reviews of aeolian sediments, either historic and sleek, have exhibited a few very important conceptual advances lately. particularly, there was a movement clear of descriptions of sediments, bedforms and sedimentary environments towards a brand new emphasis at the dynamics of aeolian depositional structures at assorted temporal and spatial scales, and their reaction to exterior alterations in sea degrees, nearby and worldwide climates and tectonics. This specified e-book incorporates a number of papers that have been provided on the Symposium "Aeolian Sediments: old and smooth" held in 1990. it's also a few contributions from authors who weren't capable of attend the assembly, yet whose paintings displays vital facets of latest study in aeolian sedimentology.State-of-the-art learn papers in aeolian sedimentologyInternational, specialist authorshipOf relevance to fashionable matters approximately worldwide weather changeIf you're a member of the overseas organization of Sedimentologists, for getting information, please see:
