Abstract

This paper demonstrates how changes to the aeolian environment of the Lower Mojave Valley in recent decades represent complex interactions between the wind regime, river channel morphology and sediment, surface hydrology, subsurface hydrology and geologic conditions, vegetation, and human interactions. This study uses ground observations, aerial and orbital imagery, and historical documentation to trace short-term changes to the dune environment. The results demonstrate the sensitivity of aeolian systems to land-use changes, and illustrate the rapidity with which such changes can occur
