The main purpose of this article is to provide an indicator in addition to existing indicators for determining the direction of the dominant wind in the region (Arg-Hasan Abad of Bafgh). This indicator can be helpful in areas where other indicators, such as wind statistics for wind rose, satellite images and aerial photographs are less available.
In the implementation of this project, with the help of the statistics of Bafq synoptic station, the monthly, seasonal and annual wind roses were drawn. furthermore, the morphology of sand dunes was investigated using satellite images of the region and the total of the above activities were drawn upon to determine the dominant winds. Thereupon, the random network was applied onto the satellite image and the coordinates of forty points were extracted, which were approximately 500 meters apart. Using the GPS, the points were called upon and the sediment samples were taken. The specimens were screened and their cumulative graphs and diameter distribution were plotted in terms of fi and micron, and the mean, skewness and sorting factors were calculated with the help of the corresponding formulas. By drawing the diameter contour lines, it was found that there is a significant relationship between the dominant wind direction and the distribution of grain size in the area of Ark.
