Abstract : The formation and existence of coastal sand dunes are important considerations in the analysis of coastal problems and selection and design of remedial measures, but little in the way of detailed information has been published on the coastal dunes of California. This paper describes dune localities along the California coast and examines their common features. Dune forms, beach configuration and conditions, activity of dune sand, and sediment sources are the factors considered in describing the localities.
