Simulation of the Effect of Wind Speedup in the Forma- Tion of Transverse Dune Fields

Abstract

A computer simulation model for transverse-dune-field dynamics, corresponding to a uni-directional wind regime, is developed. In a previous formulation, two distinct problems were found regarding the cross-sectional dune shape, namely theerosion in the leeofdunesand the steepnessof thewindward slopes.The first problemis solvedby introducingnoerosion in… (More)
