This study assesses the geography and volume of coastal dune sand along Lakes Huron and Michigan in Lower Michigan. Dune field extents were obtained from digital maps of critical dune area and soil parent material. Volumetric estimates were determined by establishing basal surface elevations and then calculating the average height of overlying dune deposits using digital elevation model (DEM) data within a raster GIS framework.
