Abstract

The aim of this paper is to identify possible sources for the material found in nebkhas in northern Burkina Faso. Grain-size distributions of nebkhas sediments and five other subenvironments were analyzed using univariate and multivariate methods. Quartz-grain surface textures were studied by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The SEM and grain-size analyses together indicate that the nebkhas have experienced considerable recent aeolian abrasion and sorting
