The effect of surface curvature of the deposition of loess : a physical model

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

GOOSSENS D. ;

Abstract

The model is tested in a sedimentation experiment with a symmetrical hill (with length axis perpendicular to the flow direction) in a wind tunnel. It appears both from the model and the experiment that loess deposition will occur preferably on windward slopes and not on loward ones, in contrast to the widespread wind shadow concept
