They started excavating three fire pits on the south side of the ridge where the soil was a thin, eolian deposit overlying regolith, or crumbled rough rock.
Fluvial and eolian erosion and deposition are the main geomorphic processes.
Dunes and adjacent uplands with a cover of eolian sand support a succession of plant communities, from bare dune through Sand-verbena - beach bursage series.
Mass wasting, fluvial erosion, wave erosion (coastal marine), and eolian erosion and deposition are the main geomorphic processes.
The gently sloping Monticello Upland is blanketed by eolian material deposited in the lee of the Abajo Mountains.
These deep eolian soils are composed of fine sand and support warm season grasses, winterfat, Mormon tea, four-wing saltbush, and sagebrush.
The Sand Deserts ecoregion is nearly level and contains a mantle of sandy eolian deposits, shifting dunes, and exposed sandstone bedrock.
On Pleistocene nonmarine sediments, over which eolian sand has spread, they are Xeropsamments, Haplic Durixeralfs, and Typic Albaquults.
Dry lake beds are numerous, and there are extensive eolian deposits, including both dune sand and loess.
Ocean currents, waves, and wind (coastal marine and eolian processes) are active along the outer edges of the coastal plain.
