The aeolian deposits could have been affected by tides, as reported in other modern and ancient environments with tidal-aeolian interactions (e.g.
Aeolian deposits post date the strandlines, and 14 new ages (Table 1) are included to compare with previously collected OSL ages (Campbell et al.
Peter Sandstone of the midwestem United States that formed as coastal aeolian deposits (Mazzullo and Ehrlich, 1983) and marine offshore and shoreface deposits that were reworked by aeolian processes (Winfree, 1983).
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).
Widespread dune and other aeolian deposits along the lowlands adjacent to the Beaufort Sea (Carter, 1981; Hill and Nadeau, 1984; Vincent, 1989; Dallimore et al., 1997; Bateman and Murton, 2006) indicate that Beaufort coastlands were extremely arid during Pleistocene cold phases.
The fluvial channels seem to be very wide, and they are divided during low-water stages into numerous distributaries separated by temporary islands with aeolian deposits and ephemeral ponds that allowed only a very limited development of subaquatic life.

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'.
