Abstract

This article reviews what little is known of the boundary layer and surficial controls on aeolian activity in contemporary cold humid settings. Field and simulation work on the boundary layer and surface controls, which include wind shear velocity, air density, sediment texture, pore water, snow, ice, and vegetation, suggests a complex system of interactions. Frozen and wet surfaces, traditionally viewed as stable, become very active under certain circumstances
