|Loess and Eolian dust refer to silt-sized material deposited on the Earth surface by the surface winds. These deposits provide some of the most dramatic examples of changes in climate and the effect of processes that shape the landscape. Successive layers are often analyzed to provide a history of the winds and surficial processes through time.|
