The stable contact points can be well cemented together but with a water-soluble binder, to the point that the concomitance of certain load and humidity situations produces the collapse of the soil structure combined with consequent large failures. Fortunately, the failures can be avoided with the help of Bore Replacement Services.
The loss is predominant among the lands prone to collapse and is widespread covering 17% of the USA as of Europe, 15% of the territories of the former USSR and most of China. According to Flint the loss is little present in Canada while it is absent in Australia and Africa (but both continents have other types of wind deposits).
The loss, genetically, originates from deposits formed by particles carried by the wind over areas subjected to glacial run-off, so that the moisture intercepted caused the soil particles to precipitate. It follows that the non-glacial areas do not have loss deposits.
