Abstract

In autumn 1986 and spring 1987 observations on dune morphodynamics and the development of wind ripples were carried out in the Ténéré desert. The variability and complexity of ripple patterns can only be met with by a morphogenetic qualitative approach. The trend, bifurcation or truncation of principal ripple crests, the orientation and type of secondary ripples or the infilling of ripples by fines serve as sensitive indicators of changes of intensity and sand saturation of the wind
