The inspiration for this quantity got here in the course of the dryland periods of the organization of yankee Geographers assembly in San Diego in April, 1992. the big variety of papers dedicated to aeolian strategies and landforms indicated to me that aeolian geomorphology had come of age and the final 15 years or so had produced a plethora of papers, books, and edited volumes on all facets of aeolian geomorphology. bankruptcy one is my tentative try to position boost­ ments in aeolian geomorphology in a ancient standpoint and to think about a few options concerning the destiny. The fourteen papers chosen tackle a variety of matters starting from micro-scale stories dedicated to aeolian dirt, sediment shipping, and rock varnish in ventifacts to medium-scale reviews of dunes and dune varieties, opposite desertification, and macro-scale reports of ergs and sand shipping pathways. the yank Southwest, relatively the stunning and precise Mojave desolate tract of California, is featured prominently in seven chapters. i am hoping this quantity offers scholars and associates a few new views in aeolian geomorphology in addition to pathways for destiny work.
