This site has links to two Flash animations. Evolution of Basin and Range Landforms demonstrates fault movement and subsequent sediment erosion and deposition that create mountains and valleys. Formation of a Sand Dune illustrates sand grain erosion, transport, and deposition from the windward to leeward side of a dune. These visualizations are from Chapter 13 (Deserts and Wind Action) of the animations ... Full description.

This Flash animation illustrates aeolian processes that form terrestrial arches. Erosion exploits tectonic fractures and results in thin sandstone walls that can be penetrated by near ground windblown sand grains. Over time, weathering and gravity causes arches to fall. Users can stop, play, fast forward and rewind the animation at any time. This visualization is one of several animations in a series ... Full description.
