Fort Nelson: unconsolidated deposits with good potential as frac sands include the aeolian deposits of the Fontas Dune Field southeast of Fort Nelson (Hickin and others, 2010) (Figure 14).
In Latvia, soils with sandy soil texture are mainly related to the Baltic Ice Lake and Litorina Sea, aeolian deposits, and glacioaquatic (glacio-fluvial and glaciolacustrine) deposits, where Podzols and Arenosols are the dominant soils.
For the purpose of this research, strong subsoil is defined as material that has formed in colluvial, alluvial, or aeolian deposits which has been compacted or indurated in situ within a soil profile (Northcote 1974).
Palaeolithic occurrences associated with fluctuating lake and riverine conditions and aeolian deposits indicates that hominin populations had to cope with substantial environmental change.
Secondary calcareous deposits have been commonly associated with aeolian deposits across south-eastern Australia (Page et al.
This includes post-depositional surface processes such as wind and water erosion; if the aeolian deposit has not been adequately stabilised and protected, these processes may have removed and redistributed the deposited dust.
Aeolian deposits can cause problems with the remote sensing of regolith materials.
Six poster presentations and a field trip to local aeolian deposits in the Canberra-Yass region (Fig.
1988) investigated soil development on granitic rocks in southeastern Australia and suggested that possibly 20% of the surface soil horizons at Sutton and Bemboka may have originated as aeolian deposits.
Although the influence of these aeolian deposits on soils is very significant, it has not been described in detail other than `uniform soils over large areas showing very similar morphological features'.
