English term or phrase: blowout
Definition from
A shallow circular or elliptical depression in sand or dry soil formed by wind erosion.

Example sentence(s):
  • Deflation basins, called blowouts, are hollows formed by the removal of particles by wind. Blowouts are generally small, but may be up to several kilometers in diameter.
  • Slopes protected from the prevailing winds have had negligible wind erosion except in areas where severe erosion created deflation basins. These blowout basins are limited to small interfluve areas, a few square miles in size, which probably had a thick layer of loose, sand-size fissile-shale fragments that winds could erode. Soil Science Society of America
  • Wind erosion removes and redistributes soil. Small blowout areas may be associated with adjacent areas of deposition at the base of plants or behind obstacles, such as rocks, shrubs, fence rows, and roadbanks. United States Department of Agriculture

वायु के कटाव से रेत या सूखी मिट्टी में बना खोखला वृत्तीय या दीर्घवृत्तीय गढ्ढा.

Example sentence(s):
  • सतह के उपर असंगठित तथा कोमल शैलों को पवन अपने अपवाहन या उडाव की क्रिया से प्रभावित करके उनके ढ़ीले कणों को उडा ले जाती हैं, जिस कारण अनेक छोटे-छोटे गर्तो का निर्माण होता हैं । धीरे-धीरे इन गर्तो का आकार और गहराई दोनो बडने लगते हैं । इनका आकार एक प्लेट की तरह होता हैं । संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका के ग्रेट प्लेन्स के लघु आकार वाली इन स्थलाक्र्तियों को बफैलो वालोस तथा मंगोलिया में पांग कियांग कहते हैं । - wikipedia

Yes  Shashi Kant Singh: The translation is correct but in example, the spelling of the word स्थलाक्र्तियों is wrong. The correct spelling is "स्‍थलाकृतियों'. After correction this may be included.
