Various snow dune forms were observed and photographed on frozen Lake Erie at Marblehead, Ohio, in January 1982. The dune field contained several dune types. The barchan was the most common form; seif and triangular dunes were also sighted. Conditions necessary for dune formation included winds from a constant direction and a flat ice surface. Dunes were not seen on the ice where pressure ridges existed.
