Description

This free online course on aeolian processes and dunes formation in geomorphology will begin by introducing you to the importance of the aeolian processes in weathering formation as well as the relationship aeolian processes have with the wind. You will learn about the dynamics of aeolian transport along with the deposition. You will find out about the geomorphic significance of the aeolian processes.

This course will also introduce you to the different mechanisms of erosion. Then, this course will teach you about the product of wind abrasion and its action, as well as the particles that form the most peculiar mushroom-shaped pedestal. Furthermore, this course will introduce you to the effects wind has on sand landform development, as well as how sand ripples are created on the other hand. 

Finally, this course will introduce you to the formation and the different classifications of dunes in geomorphology. This course will help you to learn about the sand seas, as well as the roles of shoreline platform in dunes formation. The course will also aid your learning about tectonic geomorphology. Begin this course to learn about the composition of the aeolian process of geomorphology.
