Abstract

The aim of this paper is to report on yardangs in the Payun Matru Volcanic Field, a semiarid area east of the southern Andes mountains, and to analyse the geomorphic fators for their formation, and their relationship to the upper Pleistocene and Holocene lava flow events in the area. The yardang development is explained by the strong unidirectional winds, the poor vegetational cover due to the aridity of the region, the available quartz sand and volcanic ash particles as abrasive agents, and the volcanic lithology texture and flow structure
