Abstract

Starting from a basic unit, a classification of features built up by eolian sand is proposed. Like with hydrographic systems, it is possible to differenciate dunes. The features of eolian origin of all scales as well as the parameters of their effects and the receding mobility from barchan to sif, silk, ghourd and the most extensive wind drift forms are included. Only the satellite photos made possible the recognition of superordinate regularities and the extremly complex arrangement of these features.
