Abstract

Understanding the morphodynamics of beach-dune systems requires knowledge of the spatio-temporal variability of the sediment transport system. It is common in aeolian studies to employ a single transect instrument set up, oriented parallel to the wind direction. This experimental design assumes that there is no significant variation in sediment transport lateral to this direction. A limited number of recent studies into this lateral (or spanwise) variability have revealed substantial differences in transport rates over very short spanwise distances (
