Abstract

This paper shows that a kink is indeed a physical feature of the modified wind velocity profile and that it is caused, as Bagnold (1941) suggested, by a maximum, occurring at some height above the surface, in the momentum extracted by the grains from the wind. Comments are made on both the form of the modified wind velocity profile and the fluid shear stress profile in the grain layer
