Abstract

Southeastern South Australia, straddling the coastal zone and semi-arid desert margins of the lower Murray-Darling Basin, provides an important record of landscape response to past environmental change during the Pleistocene. This study provides the first constraints on the initiation of dune development downwind of the Naracoorte East strandline. In this preliminary study the AA. show that aeolian deposition at Naracoorte was constrained by sediment supply from the strandline upwind, and was most likely gradual, more or less continuous, and took place under relatively arid climatic regimes. They demonstrate a genetic link between strandlines and the dune fields in the region
