Linear dunes are the most abundant type of desert dune and the dominant land-form on the continent of Australia. This paper reports the results of GPR surveys across linear dunes in the deserts of central Australia including parts of the Simpson and Strzelecki deserts. The GPR data suffered from severely limited penetration and poor resolution due to signal attenuation associated with a high proportion of mud, which, probably due to progressive illuviation, increases with dune age. However, although such conditions prevail in much of central Australia, useful stratigraphic information can still be obtained there using GPR. Buried palaeosol horizons within...
