Abstract

The vertical distribution of the wind-blown sand flux in a 40 cm low layer above the ground surface was investigated through laboratory wind-tunnel tests and field measurements on the mobile dune surface during sand storms in the Taklamakan Desert. The objectives were: to determine the effect of wind velocity on the distribution pattern of wind-blown sand flow; to examine the properties of the discontinuous function of the transport rate with height; and to develop an equation for expressing the vertical distribution and predicting the total sediment transport quantity of wind-blown sand flux near the ground surface
