Short summary
Understanding the contribution of the vegetation and dune size to nebkha dune growth could improve model predictions on coastal dune development. We monitored a natural nebkha dune field with a drone with camera. Our results show that dune growth in summer is mainly determined by dune size, whereas in winter dune growth was determined by vegetation. In our study area the growth of exposed dunes was restricted by storm erosion, whereas growth of sheltered dunes was restricted by sand supply.
