  • The field experiment was undertaken at Greenwich Dunes, Prince Edward Island National Park, Canada. Wind flow and sand transport intensity were measured on the seaward slope of a vegetated foredune during a 16 h storm using an array of sonic
  • anemometers and Wenglor laser particle counters. Sand transport was initially inhibited by a brief period of rain at the start of the event but as the surface dried and wind speed increased sand transport was initiated over the entire seaward slope. Transport
  • intensity was quite variable both temporally and spatially on the upper slope as a result of fluctuating wind speed and direction, but overall magnitudes were similar over the whole length. Transport on the beach for onshore winds is decoupled from
  • that on the seaward slope above the small scarp when the wind angle is highly oblique, but for wind angles
