.... The area is within the broad, windswept zone of central Wyoming (Fig. 1) known as the Wyoming Wind Corridor(Marrs and Kolm, Kolm 1982). The large active dunes at this site and older stabilized dunes in the area are part of the Seminoe Dune Field (Fig. 1) 2). Most dunes in the area are marginally stabilized...

.... But, in areas of stably stratified flow, this plan view provides a first approximation of the flow pattern useful for identifying high wind-energy areas. Smaller wind channels within the Wyoming wind corridor display energies at least two to three times greater than adjacent areas. The dimensions and types...

... The Ferris Dune Field of south-central Wyoming lies in a topographically-regulated “corridor” of high wind that extends over much of southern Wyoming. Examination of geomorphology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy reveals that winds did not vary significantly in either average direction or speed...
