The effects of varying surface roughness on aerodynamic and aeolian processsesThe investigation of aeolian processes on Earth and Mars using wind tunnel simulations is described. The effect of variations in surface roughness on aerodynamic and aeolian processes was examined. Friction velocity ratios, wind friction threshold speeds, particle flux, and total flux were determined for various sand depths, degrees of surface roughness, and heights above a pebble bed.
