Abstract

This paper describes a number of experiments which formed a pilot examination of the abrasion and possible break-up of several artificially crusted sediments and of the release of surface particles from fine unaggregated material, resulting from impact by saltating grains. The experiments with unaggregated material were carried out in order to examine the effect of saltating grains on the detachment of particles having a minimum cohesion in comparison to crusted surfaces. The crust experiments assessed the break-up of crusts of differing strengths in relation to the flux of saltating particles
