Parabolic Dunes Landform Features of Iowa

Metadata Updated: July 19, 2013

A landscape is a collection of land shapes or land forms. Landform Regions are a grouping of individual landscape features that have a common geomophology. In Iowa, these regions are composed of earth materials derived from glacial, wind, river, and marine environments of the geologic past. This is a new representation of the Landforms of Iowa. These landforms represent different geomorphologic landscapes, and the geologic processes that have created them. Parabolic Dunes are eolian sand features that are oriented with the nose in the downwind direction, in the case of these dunes, that is southeast. It is believed that these dunes formed during the late Pleistocene, with activation into the Holocene. Parabolic dunes form when Dunes, have blow-out conditions and the sides are anchored with vegetation, but not the downwind-side, and the front of the dune migrates downwind.
