Characterisation of aeolian sediments from the Strzelecki and Tirari Deserts, Australia: Implications for reconstructing palaeoenvironmental conditions

Fitzsimmons, Kathryn; Magee, John; Amos, Kathryn J


In arid environments dominated by desert dunes, aeolian sediments represent a major source of potential palaeoenvironmental information. However, the extent to which dune sedimentology can be used for past environmental reconstruction is unclear. This paper assesses the value of dune sediments as palaeoenvironmental indicators by investigating the sedimentological characteristics of linear dunes in the Strzelecki and Tirari Deserts of central Australia. We use thin section microscopy, particle...[Show more]
