Figure 2. Cooper Creek exits a confinement at Innamincka, in South Australia, and flows into a large alluvial and aeolian fan which comprises most of the Strzelecki desert. Solid lines indicate contemporary river flow paths, and the dashed line indicates identified palaeochannels beneath the floodplain. The dotted lines show the 'source-bordering' aeolian dunes which run parallel to the palaeochannels. The linear dune clusters have then spread downwind from these source bordering dunes.
