Abstract

Some parts of the interdune areas on the northern margin of the Namib Sand Sea are characterized by areas of thin sand sheets and sand patches 1 to 10 m across and a few centimetres thick that appear to be protodunes. This paper documents their morphology, distribution and short-term dynamics and examines sand patch distribution in relation to changes in surface roughness and boundary-layer winds
