...with the application of heat. In this case, heat functions like wind would on real sand dunes. The researchers investigated under which conditions the dune
gets pushed in the way they wanted it and forms a desired shape.

Squeezing out dune plants
"Coastal erosion, global sea-level rise, and the loss of sand dune
Researchers from Texas A&M University created a model to better understand the impacts of development and coastal erosion on plant communities, including plants that grow in the ever-shrinking strip of habitat...
Wind, salt and water are leading indicators of land degradation in Abu Dhabi
The study found that, among natural forces of land degradation, wind has a major role in moving soil from loose surfaces, and mainly in dune
areas. Wind is the main cause of irreversible land degradation in the arid environment of Abu Dhabi. Wind erosion indicators are formation of fall dun...
