Abstract

As a basic form of pattern analysis, the parameters of dune spacing, defect density, crest orientation and crest length are measured from remote images and treated statistically for dunes at White Sands in New Mexico, the Algodones in California, the Agneitir in Mauritania, and the Namib in Namibia. The results are consistent with models of dune fields as self-organizing complex systems in which a characteristic pattern emerges as a function of constructional time
