Landforms are created in the arid region mostly by winds. Some landforms are also developed by water. Arid landforms are characterised by badlands, Mushroom rocks, dunes, yardang, etc. These features are typical in an arid region. There are three processes are involved by air for the creation of arid landform:
- Deflation: It is the process of removal of loosened material and its transport as fine grains in atmospheric suspension.
- Abrasion: It is the wearing away of relatively solid rock or indurated sediment.
- Attrition: While transportation, wear, and tear of sand and dust particles are called attrition.
