Abstract

This chapter provides a companion chapter to Hesp (2012) in which the initiation, dynamics, morphology, and evolution of the principal coastal dune types are examined. Those dune types are foredunes, blowouts, parabolic dunes, and transgressive dune fields. This chapter presents an accompanying overview of those dunes in the form of a photoessay which attempts to show the morpho-ecological diversity of, and within the various dune types. The initiation, morphological types and stages, and evolutionary patterns of the various dune types are examined, and the photographs and diagrams attempt to provide a visual explanation of some of the diverse range of dune types, ages, and stages possible.
