Abstract

Vegetation plays an important role in shaping the morphology of aeolian dune landscapes in coastal and semi-arid environments, where ecogeomorphic interactions are complex and not well quantified. The AA. present a Discrete ECogeomorphic Aeolian Landscape model (DECAL) capable of simulating realistic looking vegetated dune forms, permitting exploration of relationships between ecological and morphological processes at different temporal and spatial scales. This simple vegetated dune model illustrates the power and versatility of a cellular automaton approach
