Carbonate Eolianites deposited in coastal environments 

Carbonate Eolianites deposited in coastal environments
Description: Carbonate eolianites are deposited as coastal dunes immediately landward of high-energy beaches (McKee and Ward, 1983). They commonly form a transverse ridge parallel to the shoreline, with the windward side facing the open sea and the leeward side facing inland (see below). As with beaches, eolian dunes can form in several areas of the platform.
