Description :
This paper reports the findings of an investigation into the timing and paleoenvironmental significance of linear dune development in western Zambia, between latitudes 14°S and 17°S. Chronologies of dune construction in western Zimbabwe and the southwest Kalahari are in broad agreement with this Zambian chronology and support a model of rainfall shifts along a SW-NE gradient.
