Controls on sand ramp formation in southern Namibia
Sand ramps have the potential to provide rich palaeoenvironmental information in dryland regions wherein proxy records are typically scarce. However, current knowledge of the geomorphic controls and processes of sand ramp formation is limited. This study provides a data-rich examination of the key factors controlling sand ramp formation. The location and morphology of 75 sand ramps in southern Namibia are examined. The sediments and chronologies of 10 sand ramps are studied in detail using 51...Expand abstract
