Abstract

The Wadi Raiyan-depression, was generated by deflation processes. Beside the big depressions a lot of smaller endoreic basins exist also generated by deflation processes. One of these is the object of geomorphological studies. Shifting dunes which are moving in the direction of the prevailing winds build up natural dams, which block the surface flow of rainfall. There exist sedimentary traps for fine-grained sediments for a short moment. The distribution and the geomorphological position of these fine-grained sediments can be explained by a former pattern of the dunes, only. Other pointers of the fluvial processes (rills, mudflows) are strongly influenced by eolian dynamics
