Abstract

The results of this study document the mechanisms for formation of dune hollows by foredune accretion and identify the strong relationship between wave processes and location, orientation, and shape of depressions. Wind plays a role in the formation of hollows primarily through construction of the new foredune, and wind eventually becomes the dominant agent of landform change landward of the new foredune crest. Many dune depressions continue to evidence their noneolian origins and to influence how eolian processes reshape the dune
