Spatial variations in dune height and spacing and in the grain size and sorting parameters of dune crest sands suggest that the Namib sand sea has accumulated principally by the movement of sands from southern and western coastal source areas to central and northern areas of net sand accumulation. This model appears to be consistent with the available wind data and agrees with existing hypotheses of sand sea formation.
