Quantitative prediction of aeolian transport rates on beaches is still a difficult task, an important reason being the large spatio-temporal variability inherent to this type of transport. In order to validate new approaches to calculate aeolian transport, in situ field measurements are needed, combined with the knowledge on how to interpret point measurements in this spatio-temporal varying transport field. In this contribution we present the first results of field experiments that aimed at exploring the effects of sensor positioning on the recording of Aeolian transport, including possible sensor related influences.
