“This is a terrific read for both specialists and nonspecialists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (Choice, 1 February 2014)
Andrew Warren's splendid new book, which is based on over four decades of research, is the first major review of dunes since Ralph Bagnold's classic 'The Physics of Blown Sand and Desert Dunes' of 1941. It provides a modern and international perspective on dune development on Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System at a wide range of time scales. —Andrew Goudie, Emeritus Professor of Geography, University of Oxford
Andrew Warren has produced a much-needed comprehensive account of dunes in different environments, integrating processes and forms at all temporal and spatial scales, and making use of newly available online resources such as Google Earth. The book incorporates the latest ideas from numerical modelling and field studies, and provides a readable introduction to the field. —Nicholas Lancaster, Research Professor, Desert Research Institute, Reno, Nevada, USA.
