Abstract

The principal aim of this study is to measure the variability in wind speed on the windward slope of a dune, determine the magnitude of wind acceleration, describe the effects of this acceleration on the shape of wind profiles, and discuss the implications of these findings with regard to calculated values of shear velocity and calculated rates of sand transport
