Abstract: This article presents a preliminary characterization of the contemporary aeolian sediment dynamics of the island of Boa Vista (Cape Verde Archipelago). Preliminary results suggest that the entire island represents an integrated aeolian/marine sediment transport system involving transport around and across the island under the influence of the Trade Winds. Human interference in the sediment transport system has been noted and recommendations for future development to take account of natural dynamics are presented.
