The objective of this study was to better understand wind streak formation and modification processes through field examination of two distinctly different wind streaks in the eastern Mojave desert. The Amboy and Sleeping Beauty wind streaks are examined in order to assess the effect on surface albedo of rock populations and vegetative cover both inside and outside the streak. Rock abundances, both at the surface and at depth, were documented, a particle size analysis was made of subsurface rocks, and the plant population was characterized inside and outside of the Sleeping Beauty streak
