The timing of linear dune activity in the Strzelecki and Tirari Deserts, Australia

Fitzsimmons, Kathryn; Rhodes, Edward; Magee, John; Barrows, Timothy


Linear dunes occupy more than one-third of the Australian continent, but the timing of their formation is poorly understood. In this study, we collected 82 samples from 26 sites across the Strzelecki and Tirari Deserts in the driest part of central Australia to provide an optically stimulated luminescence chronology for these dunefields. The dunes preserve up to four stratigraphic horizons, bounded by palaeosols, which represent evidence for multiple periods of reactivation punctuated by...[Show more]
