Aeolian geomorphology of the Namib Sand Sea

    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle

    Abstract

    This review is concerned with the aeolian geomorphology of the Namib Sand Sea, part of the Namib Desert in Namibia, south-west Africa, concentrating in particular on studies made over the past 50 years. The paper covers: sand sea organisation and dune patterns; and the dynamics of individual dunes. It demonstrates that studies in the Namib Sand Sea have been important to a much wider understanding of the geomorphological development of global sand seas. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
