Aeolian processes across transverse dunes. II modelling

This paper discusses a model which simulates dune development resulting from aeolian saltation transport. The model was developed for application to coastal foredunes but is also applicable to sandy deserts with transverse dunes. Sediment transport is calculated using published deterministic and empirical relationships describing the influence of

Sediment transportWikipedia

Aeolian or eolian (depending on the parsing of æ) is the term for sediment transport by wind. This process results in the formation of ripples and sand dunes. Typically the size of the transported sediment is fine sand (<1 mm) and smaller because air is a fluid with low density and viscosity and can therefore not exert very much shear on

Reversing transverse dunes Modelling of airflow switching

1. Introduction. Airflow over terrestrial sand dunes is the fundamental forcing mechanism in dune landform dynamics. If sufficiently strong wind will transport sediment and move aeolian landforms in the dominate direction of the local wind regime.

Monitoring Aeolian Features and Processes (U.S. National

Aeolian deposits—sand dunes. Aeolian dunes form part of a hierarchical system of self-organizing bedforms which comprises (1) wind ripples (spacing 0.1–1 m) (2) individual simple dunes or superimposed dunes on compound and complex dunes (spacing 50–500 m) and (3) compound and complex (mega-) dunes or draa (spacing more than 500 m).

Science Spotlight Aeolian Sand Dunes — Edmonton Area

Mar 18 2019 · Vegetated aeolian dune fields are referred to as "stable" and unvegetated fields as "unstable" or "active". Vegetation around sand dunes suppresses aeolian sediment transport and at a critical vegetation cover threshold dunes become completely immobilized. There are two geomorphic functions of vegetation.

Aeolian Sediment Transport Integration in General

The main contribution of our work to aeolian sediment transport modelling is the ability to simulate polydisperse particles saltation in three dimensions and the resulting complexity of dune sedimentary facies at regional scale (see Figure 6). Our model is currently successful in generating relatively realistic dune landscapes and it appears

AEOLIAN PROCESSES AND DUNE FIELDS IN ESTUARIES Physical

Dunes occur in numerous locations in estuaries despite constraints to active aeolian transport caused by the paucity and small size of sand beaches. Examination of dune characteristics in two large estuaries in the northeastern United States (Raritan Bay and Delaware Bay) reveals that active foredunes formed by natural processes are small
