A twenty-one-year record of surface change on a Namib linear dune

, : A twenty-one-year record of surface change on a Namib linear dune. Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 28(9): 1025-1031

Repeated surveying of two sites on a Namib linear dune between 1980 and 2001 provides a 21-year record of dune surface change. The surveys confirm the view that the dunes are not inactive relics but are responding to the present-day wind regime. They also provide no evidence that the dunes are migrating laterally. Examination of wind data for the survey period provides some evidence that the form of the crest of the dunes is actively responding to the natural year-by-year climate variability, such that an increase in the frequency of easterly winds leads to the development of a double-crested form while fewer easterly winds lead to a single-crested form.

AC/GT and AG/CT simple sequence repeats (SSRs or microsatellites) were isolated from the Norway spruce (Picea abies) nuclear genome. Based on hybridization data it was estimated that there is one AC SSR every 500-600 kb and one AG SSR every 200-30...
