Abstract

A simple model for the dynamics of dunes associated with vegetation is proposed. Using the model, the formation processes of transverse dunes, parabolic dunes and elongated parabolic dunes are simulated according to 2 environmental factors : the amont of sand at the source; the wind force. The results have qualitative correspondence to the real counterpart, and the simplicity of the algorithm and the consequence ease of handling this model provide us with wide applicability for the investigation of the complex interplay between vegetation and dunes
