The Fourth International Planetary Dunes Workshop: Integrating Models, Remote Sensing, and Field Data was held May 19–22, 2015 in Boise, Idaho (see Final Announcement). More than 60 researchers and students participated in two and a half days of presentations and lively discussion, plus a full day field trip toBruneau Dunes State Park. The workshop focused on the many landforms and deposits created by the dynamic interactions between granular material and airflow (aeolian processes). These processes are known to occur on several planetary bodies, including Earth, Mars, Titan, Venus, and most recently the surface of a comet.
A special issue in Aeolian Research is planned to highlight the results presented at the workshop, in addition to other recent aeolian studies of planetary surfaces. Manuscripts on any topic within planetary aeolian studies are solicited, but those focusing on planetary dune systems are particularly encouraged. While terrestrial analog studies are welcome for the special issue, these manuscripts should include discussion of how the results relate to the analysis of features in planetary environments.
Please send an email (as an indication of interest) that includes a working title, proposed author list, and two-sentence description of the manuscript to [email protected] by August 29, 2015.
Deadline for submission of final manuscripts is February 1, 2016.
