Abstract

The AA. report and interpret the significance of, an eolian sand ramp in the mountains that represent the southern margin of Ardakan Kavir. The well-sorted eolian sediments of the ramp contain talus beds and incipient paleosols. Morphology and bedding structures imply that southeasterly winds were primarily responsible for deposition of the eolian sand. Optical dating shows that the sand was deposited near the last glacial maximum within about 5000 yr
