Abstract

The AA. report the results of a field study that was designed to test the feasibility of using ground-based LIDAR to map the topography of a sand dune in high spatial resolution. They present a surface topography model obtained from a scanning experiment performed on a barchan dune in the White Sands National Monument, New Mexico in January 2003. The 3D surface model of the dune can describe the morphology with hitherto unprecedented detail
