Earth Movers - Wind
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Have you ever seen a picture of a sand dune? If so, you have seen the effects of wind. Wind can transport earth materials the same way water does.
 
2     There are some differences between wind and water movement, however. First, wind does not depend on gravity to help it. Water can only transport particles downhill. Wind can transport particles uphill. That is how a sand dune is made.
 
3     Another difference between wind and water erosion is the size of the particles that can be transported. Unless there is a tornado or hurricane, wind can't carry large particles like water can. Because of this, wind is usually not a strong force of erosion.
