Physical Geology 101 1 31. Deserts and Wind (p. 517-53) Wind One of the major means of erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment is by wind. It may be an important factor in any location where there is material light enough to blow around. Locations: 1. __________ 2. __________ 3. __________ 4. __________ 5. _______________ Transport of Sediment by Wind Any proces that involves wind is caled an _________ proces. Wind is a turbulent fluid and therefore has many of the same transportation characteristics as water flowing in chanels. How dense is air compared to water? ______________________ How does this afect the size of the sediment that air can cary? ___________________________ Wind can suspend clay and silt size particles; very strong winds may be able to suspend smal grains of sand. Similar to rivers, the wind-transported sediment load can ocur as: 1) __________ and 2) __________. What two proceses move the bed...
