Abstract

Examples of ventifacts and forms of unusual patterned ground that differ in situation, characteristics and/or origin to types reported previously are described from the Falkland Islands : stone polygons on clay loam regolith, stone polygons on peat, peat-filled desiccation cracks on peat, and clusters of on-edge clasts (stone packings) on a gravel beach. Although these features occupy small surface areas they provide useful information about local geomorphic processes and testify to the marked diversity of such features in nature
