Abstract

Sand transport takes place when the wind speed is higher than some critical value. When the wind speed is not too high and the sand has a monodisperse size distribution it is possible that ripples are formed. Simple relationships are derived between the wavelength of the ripples, the sand-grain motion, and the increase in drag due to sand transport. The theoretical results are in agreement with field observations.
