These results show that spatial characteristics of this parabolic dune
are related to advance rates, and may be used as indicators of advance on similar dunes.
The sand was not studied in detail and is assumed to be lower-shoreface sand associated with Lake Warren or Wayne, or aeolian sand associated with the parabolic dune
observed adjacent to the gully (Fig.
Rates of parabolic dune
migration in this area are not currently known, but are believed to be comparable to dune migration rates at Aberffraw, Anglesey, North Wales, ranging from 0-3.
The result looks like a boomerang and is called a parabolic dune
- the final growth stage of White Sands' dunes.
Hoffmaster State Park: a foredune, a 10-meter high blowout dune, and a 60-meter high parabolic dune
The western edge abuts against a large parabolic dune
The following sections describe the geomorphic expression of these lake level changes along the coasts of southern Lake Superior and northern Lake Michigan and parabolic dune
distributions along the coast of southern Lake Michigan.
The study area is at the southwest tip of a large parabolic dune
However, paleosols were also mapped in the interior of one large parabolic dune
(Figures 3 and 5c).
Green Mountain Beach Dune is a migrating parabolic dune
, 400 m long and over 30 m high, 9 km southwest of Holland, Michigan.
