published at : Special issue. Aeolian environments
This paper reports a comparative analysis of nebkha morphology in central Tunisia and northern Burkina Faso based on a total of 473 measured nebkhas. Nebkhas are mounds composed of wind-borne sediment that accumulated around shrubs. The importance of the temporal factor was analysed by applying the equilibrium concept to the development of the nebkha form in conjunction with additional evidence from dates and a literature survey. The nebkhas analysed in this study are assumed to be in a closed system
