    Wind-tunnel simulations and field experiments for dust transport by air show that deposition is predominant on the windward side of hills whereas sans deposition is mainly observed on the lee side. That and other aspects such as the existence of several deposition regimes depending on wind intensity call for theoretical explanations. We present some preliminary considerations leading to such a theoretical framework.
