Late Quaternary Tectonics and Basin Inversion: a case from the Lower Narmada valley, India
Laxman Chamyal
The Indian Plate is currently moving northeast at 5 cm/yr (2 in/yr), while the Eurasian Plate is moving northeast at only 2 cm/yr (0.8 in/yr). This is causing the Eurasian Plate to deform, and the Indian Plate to ...

The continental dunefield of Australia
Paul Hesse
Dunefields cover a large portion of the Australian continent in areas with favourable topography, climate and sand supply. The main areas of dunes lie in a diagonal band across the continent from the Mallee ...

Regional trends in desert dune morphology and orientation: Examples from the Australian deserts
Kathryn Fitzsimmons
Dunes are the major landforms within the desert regions of the world, owing largely to the dominance of wind over water as a geomorphic agent in the arid zone. Linear dunes, which form parallel to the resultant ...

Linear dune formation: Longitudinal elongation or local wind rifting? An example from the Strzelecki Desert, central Australia
Kathryn Fitzsimmons
The Australian desert dunefields are dominated by linear dunes, which form a large anti-clockwise whorl across more than one third of the continent (Wasson et al., 1988). Despite being so extensive, the mechanisms ...

Native animals and the formation of healthy soils
David Eldridge
Soil is an important resource on which most of the world's production depends. Soil is not an inert medium; it is a living and breathing ecosystem made up of water, air and organic material. Soil provides the ...

Ant activity and the development of nutrient-rich soil profiles
David Eldridge
Rainfall is one of the most important factors in arid and semi-arid (dryland) environments; it supplements soil moisture storage, stimulates plant germination, and brings new life to dormant vegetation. Rainfall ...

Climate change in the dead heart of Australia
Joshua Larsen
Despite the absence of large-scale glaciation, the Australian continent has experienced substantial environmental change throughout the Quaternary period. This is especially pronounced in central Australia, where ...
