Overview

Sand dunes cover up to a quarter of many desert regions. Understanding the factors that determine their shape, size and dynamics is important to an understanding of many aspects of the geomorphology and ecology of desert regions, as well as to resource management in

these areas.

This book offers a comprehensive understanding of how desert dunes are formed, how they change and their environmental importance. Analyzing dune types, patterns, sand seas and sediments, and dune dynamics and processes at different temporal and spatial scales, the

author draws on extensive research from the deserts of South Africa, North America, India, Northern Europe and Australia.

Investigating the role of climatic change, The Geomorphology of Desert Dunes concludes that a better understanding of dune processes and

dynamics is vital for effective and appropriate mitigation of environmental problems in arid regions.
