Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine the rate of removal of iron-rich clay coatings from dune sands by aeolian abrasion. This is achieved by simulating the aeolian abrasion processes and trapping fine material released from sediments into suspension. Spectrometric measurements of the abraded sediments and fine material produced are used to quantify sediment redness, and high spectral resolution measurements are made to identify the energy-matter interactions responsible for sediment pigmentation. The particle-size characteristics of the fine material are examined to determine the potential for long distance transport
