Coastal and Aeolian Geomorphology II: Aeolian Processes and Landforms

Type: Paper

Poster #:
Day: 4/10/2018
Start / End Time: 2:40 PM / 4:20 PM
Room: Oakley, Sheraton, 4th Floor
Organizers: Patrick Barrineau, Phillip Schmutz

Aeolian processes and landforms bear biophysical as well as chemical influence on significant portions of Earth as well as other planets, making studies of wind-blown sediment relevant as ever. This session will feature investigations of aeolian processes and landforms in and out of the coastal zone, spanning all temporal and spatial scales. We invite presentations discussing topics including grain-scale sediment transport, dune morphology and migration, and system behavior like beach-dune interaction through both laboratory- and field-based studies.
