Planetary Aeolian processes are pervasive and planetary wind tunnels has provided vital insights into these processes for science and engineering goals. The Planetary Aeolian Laboratory is capable of simulating of aspects of planetary aeolian processes, but presents barriers to use. We recommend NASA revitalize planetary aeolian experimentation.
