Aeolian Sand Transport
In this contribution we present an overview of the observed developments related to aeolian processes at the Sandmotor mega-nourishment (the Netherlands) in the first six years after its implementation. We further discuss the relation of these developments to specific characteristics of the design and management of the Sandmotor. Observed space-time varying development of aeolian dunes appear to be related to sediment supply but are also clearly tied to establishment dynamics of vegetation, both being tied to the nourishment topography. Vegetation establishment can also be affected by beach management regulations.
