Abstract

The article discusses the regular system of polygons and stripes which are observed in patterned ground and which strongly suggests the occurence of one or another kind of free convection during the genesis of the pattern. It is argued that this free convection is a mechanical convection in the mud which is formed in the springtime in the uppermost soil layer. (E. John).
