The study of aeolian and coastal processes and landforms is gaining significance in Earth systems research. Investigations of these processes and landforms spanning all temporal and spatial scales are highlighted in this session, including innovative research discussing landforms, morphology and migration, grain-scale sediment transport, and beach-dune interactions. These presentations show the diversity of methods employed to understand aeolian and coastal processes and landforms, including laboratory experiments, long- and short-term field deployments, modeling, and remote sensing observations.
