Aeolian sand transport at the Lanphere Dunes, northern California

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Aeolian sand transport was studied at the Lansphere dunes, a coastal dune complex in northern California, by comparing slipface advance rates with transport predicted based on local wind data. The slipface of a 2.5 m high transverse ridge and 10 m high parabolic dune were monitored over a period of 3 months, during dry season, to estimate sand discharge. Field measurements were used to generate three-dimensional representations of dune slipfaces. Hourly wind data collected during the same time period at a site 10 km away were used with the Bagnol model to predict sand transport
