Abstract

On the eastern Canary Islands a wide variety of carbonate sand dune types exists, controlled by sediment supply, topographic position, landforms, and wind regime. Detailed field studies were carried out over a period of about 15 years. This paper gives a comparative summary of the main results, based on the following study areas : sand shields and barchans of Famara (Lanzarote), crescentic ridges of Corralejo (NE-Fuerteventura), linear dunes on the leeward coastline of Jandía (S-Fuerteventura), and complex crescentic dunes in transition to aklé-pattern of Maspalomas (S-Gran Canaria). A general model is given
