Abstract
  • Sand dunes are used as indicators of wind power potential and examples are presented of their application as a prospecting technique at four study sites in the Central Columbia River Basin. Aerial reconnaissance is combined with interpretation of photography and topographic maps as a basis of sand dune analysis. Sand samples from each site are subjected to sieve analysis and grain size statistical parameters are determined. Wind speed and direction data are presented from calculations based on dune field measurements and from weather station records. Dune morphometry figures and study area maps illustrate sand dune characteristics. Techniques are briefly critiqued indicating problems and limitations.
