To better understand the linkage between dune field evolution and interdune vegetation changes, the AA. modified Werner's dune field evolution model to account for the stabilizing effects of vegetation. They applied the model to interpreting the recent evolution of Jockey's Ridge, North Carolina, where repeat LiDAR surveys and historical aerial photographs and maps provide an unusually detailed record of recent dune field evolution. The purpose of the modeling is to gain a better conceptual and quantitative understanding of how dune fields respond to changes in the spatial distribution of vegetation and management intervention
