Is wind the only gradient agent in the desert?

Answer :

Yes, the wind is the most prominent gradient agent in the deserts. Erosion and deposition are also caused by the actions of wind. Many geographical features are created by the actions of wind. Besides winds, underground and running water can be considered as another agent. But it is rare for water to be an important agent. Since the land is highly arid and the presence of other agents like water, ice is very sporadic, wind can be considered as the only agent causing erosion and deposition in deserts.
