Abstract

Among the sandy eolian relief forms a distinction can be made between depository dunes and erosional dunes. The former are characterized by a positive sand balance, the latter by a negative balance, i. e. sand export is larger than import. The three types of erosional dunes deflation hole dunes (dunes en creux), parabolic dunes, and sand ridges) are described and a hypothesis advanced on their significance in a paleoclimatic and climatic context.
