Salutation: I was stuck thinking about aeolian dunes forming on different planets as a problem purely about if winds are fast enough to pick up grains. This work really opened my eyes to also considering if the grains can mechanically sustain being picked up in the first place! It’s a shining example of bringing ideas in different disciplines together to tackle a interesting question. A project I was working on became far richer after incorporating what I’d learned from these authors.

What was awesome? Couldn’t stop thinking about it! It made a key connection for me!
