Ancient and Modern (Special Publication 16 of the IAS)
Studies of aeolian sediments, both ancient and modern, haveexhibited a number of important conceptual advances in recentyears. In particular, there has been a move away from descriptionsof sediments, bedforms and sedimentary environments toward a newemphasis on the dynamics of aeolian depositional systems atdifferent temporal and spatial scales, and their response toexternal changes in sea levels, regional and global climates andtectonics. This Special Publication contains a selection of papersthat were presented at the Symposium "Aeolian Sediments: Ancientand Modern" held in 1990. It also includes a number ofcontributions from authors who were not able to attend the meeting,but whose work reflects important aspects of contemporary researchin aeolian sedimentology.
* State-of-the-art research papers in aeolian sedimentology
* International, expert authorship
* Of relevance to modern concerns about global climatechange
