Experimental studies of aeolian erosion on a dune sand surface, protected by an artificial crust



Experimental studies of aeolian erosion on a dune sand surface, protected by an artificial crust



Zeitschrift fur Geomorphologie 33(3): 355-360



A soil-stabilizing substance was tested. Dune sand samples were covered with a solution creating an artificial crust. The samples were exposed to aeolian erosion at different wind velocities in a wind tunnel and erosion features were studied. The experiment showed that the crust gave a good protection against wind erosion and that the resistance against impact increased exponentially with decreasing wind velocity.
