Height distortion and the sedimentation of dust on topographic scale models: considerations and simulations



Height distortion and the sedimentation of dust on topographic scale models: considerations and simulations



Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 14(6 & 7): 655-667



The effect of height distortion of a scale model on the sedimentation of natural dust (loess) on that model, when dust storm simulation experiments are conducted in a wind tunnel, was studied. A scale model of a very simple topographic feature (symmetrical hill) has been used first. Both the air-flow field over the hill and the loess deposition pattern on the hill are examined in detail for four different height distortion cases.
