Abstract

This study presents a luminescence dating chronology and sedimentological data from the lunette dunes and vegetated coastal dunes of the Agulhas Plain. Combined with previously published age data for the winter rainfall zone's eolianite deposits, the AA. explore the relative ages of the differing eolian forms, the influence of sea level upon periods of dune activity, and the extent to which these dune forms can provide useful paleoenvironmental data
