What People are saying about this
Andrew Warren has produced a much-needed comprehensive account of dunes in different environments, integrating processes and forms at all temporal and spatial scales, and making use of newly available online resources such as Google Earth. The book incorporates the latest ideas from numerical modelling and field studies, and provides a readable introduction to the field. —Nicholas Lancaster, Research Professor, Desert Research Institute, Reno, Nevada, USA.
