The periglacial origin of the drifts at Morfa‐Bychan, near Aberystwyth
The superficial deposits at Morfa-bychan have previously been interpreted as deposited by Welsh ice. A reconsideration, including: stone orientation analysis, suggests however that they consist of
The Resurgence of Aeolian Geomorphology
The past decade has witnessed a major resurgence of interest in aeolian geomorphology. The first thirty years following publication of The Physics of Blown Sand and Desert Dunes by R. A. Bagnold in
Loess—Its Formation, Transport and Economic Significance
Thick deposits of loess or windblown silt are common in many parts of the world. They accumulated mainly in areas close to extensive Pleistocene glaciers, the silt being blown principally from
Dynamic geomorphology: historical convergence towards modern practice
Abstract Geomorphology, the study of landforms and the processes that shape them, emerged in its modern form in the mid-twentieth century and continues to change. Its practice, however, derives from
The Chinese loess in Xifeng. II: A study of anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility of loess from Xifeng
SUMMARY Measurements of specimens from the loess profile of Xifeng, Gansu province, China, all show original magnetic fabric for sediments, i.e. nearly horizontal foliation and the commonly oblate
