Abstract

The foredune in arid coastal dune systems is constituted by nebkhas. Nebkhas originate by interactions between shrub vegetation and aeolian sedimentary dynamics. Although the importance of these dune forms is known, not only in ecological and landscaping function; but also, as protection against coastal erosion, the relationship between variables which form and support these landforms has not been widely studied. Accordingly, this work aims to show preliminary results of an investigation on such relationships. Samples related to land relief, sediment and vegetation in a representative nebkha located in the foredune of Famara beach (Lanzarote, Canary Islands) were analyzed. Knowledge about relationships between the variables highlights the spatial heterogeneity of features related to sediment and vegetation, with the distance in the longitudinal axis of the dune being the main variation factor.
