the sudden deflation of an inflatable tire due to a puncture or rupture, often accompanied by a bang.
Wind-eroded area within a dune system.
A deep, bowl-like depression scoured out of desert terrain by a turbulent vortex of wind.
A shallow, round or trough-shaped depression in sand or dry soil that is formed by wind erosion. The material removed by the wind may also be referred to as "blowout".
A shallow depression from which all or most of the soil material has been removed by wind A blowout has a flat or irregular floor formed by a resistant layer or by an accumulation of pebbles or cobbles. In some blowouts the water table is exposed.
a sudden malfunction of a part or apparatus; "the right front tire had a blowout"; "as a result of the blowout we lost all the lights"
a deflation basin
a depression created by wind erosion typically in either a desert sand or post-glacial loess environment
an wind-eroded section of a sand dune
Small, often circular or oval depression in sand dunes, caused by wind scouring where protective vegetation has been disturbed.
The separation of the substrate from the frame as a result of wind velocity.
A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.
(1) A parabola-shaped eolian sand dune, typically one blown back from a beach, that has its convex slip face oriented downwind. (2) A shallow circular or elliptical depression in sand or dry soil formed by wind erosion. (See also Deflation.)
DEPRESSION on the land surface caused by wind EROSION.
A depression in the land surface caused by wind erosion.
Blowouts are sandy depressions in a sand dune ecosystem (psammosere) caused by the removal of sediments by wind.
