A twenty-one-year record of surface change on a Namib linear dune

    Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

    Abstract

    Survey data from return visits to a linear dune in the Namib Desert provide information about change in dune form over a decade. The data demonstrate that, although change on these large features is slow, there is none the less considerable movement over this time-scale. The dunes are therefore confirmed to be currently active and not Pleistocene relics.
