ABSTRACT. Research of the land forming activity of wind and protection against wind erosion in Hungary. Descriptions regarding the land forming activity of wind – primarily its harmful effects and the importance of protection against it were published in Hungary as early as the 18th century. Geographers, however, started researching them only slightly more than a century ago. At the beginning morphology and land development was the most interesting to researchers. Researching the physical laws of wind erosion and possibilities of protection against wind erosion were only started at the beginning of the second half of the last century. Hungarian research of aeolian processes can be dissected into well-defined sections. The present paper aims primarily to present research ways and the most important results achieved so far.
Key words: research, wind, erosion, activity, Hungary
