Abstract

This paper reports a study of surface change on a large, complex linear dune in the Namib Desert. The dune surface responds to a markedly seasonal wind regime. Despite relatively high levels of activity, especially at the dune crest, there is no evidence of the breakdown of the linear dune form. The conclusion must therefore be that linear dunes can be maintained in bimodal wind regimes and are not necessarily related to unidirectional parallel regimes as others have suggested
