Abstract

A misprint in a classic study of desert dunes (Long and Sharp, Geological Society of America Bulletin, 1964, Vol. 75, pp. 149-156) is reported. Its influences on subsequent literature are examined. The true data of dune migration speed collected by Long and Sharp are found to show better correlation with dune height than seen in 2 recent textbooks and a paper by the AA.
