About This Publication
This guidebook provides the reader or park visitor with a better understanding of the origin of the sandhills, their geological characteristics, and the interactions between the physical and biological processes characteristic of the sandhills. It explains that the dynamic nature of the dunefield is a function of variables such as sand supply, precipitation, vegetation, winds, and human occupation. An accompanying map of dune environments shows the distribution of dune forms within the park.
