Wind as a geomorphic agent in cold climates / Matti Seppälä.

Title: Wind as a geomorphic agent in cold climates / Matti Seppälä.
Author(s): Seppälä, Matti.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Examines cold environments with respect to wind and its geomorphic impact in high latitudes. Much content is also applicable to Alpine regions and cold regions at lower latitudes. Sea ice and coastal processes are largely excluded. First describes delimitation and characterization of cold environments. Subsequently deals with: wind pattern in cold regions, wind drift of mineral material, abrasion (of rocks and peat, etc.), deflation, orientated lakes, accumulation (including sand dunes and loess), wind directions interpreted from field evidence, and ice-wedge casts and sand wedges. Remainder deals with snow and permafrost, with sections on snow cover drifting, accumulation and deflation, and wind effects on snow and frost formations (e.g., palsas)
