Summary This book describes how sand dunes work, why they are the way they are in different settings, and how they are being studied. Particular attention is paid to their formation and appearance elsewhere in the solar system. New developments in knowledge about dunes make for an interesting story - like the dunes themselves, dune science is dynamic - and the visual appeal of Aeolian geomorphology ensures that this is an attractive volume. The book is divided into 4 parts, the first of which introduces dunes as a planetary phenomenon, showing a landscape reflecting the balance of geological processes - volcanism, impact, tectonics, erosion, deposition of sediments.
Contents Part I. Introduction -- Part II. Dune basics -- Part III. Dune worlds -- Part IV. Dune studies -- Part V. Why dunes matter -- Part VI. Conclusions.
