Models, remote images, field studies and lab experiments have identified bedform interactions that involve whole bedforms, only bedform defects, or that are remote interactions between bedforms. It is proposed that field diversity arises because of boundary conditions, which are the environmental variables within which a field evolves. The aim of this paper is to address the role of boundary conditions in pattern emergence with an emphasis upon those boundary conditions that occur within aeolian and fluvial dune systems
