The physics of blown sand and desert dunes. Auteur: TSOAR, H. Description: Bagnold was the first to change the study of aeolian sand. A major advance in the study of wind-blown sand started seventy years ago with the seminal The physics of blown sand and desert dunes.This classic work was used by NASA in studying sand dunes on Mars and is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students. The first book to deal exclusively with the behavior of blown sand and related land forms, its accessible style makes it an enduring reference. 84 figures. 16 halftones.

The subject is but one aspect of a far wider problem which is still very imperfectly The Physics of Blown Sand and Desert Dunes Author: Ralph Bagnold.
