Drift: Measuring the Movement of Sand Dunes
Sand dunes are constantly changing. Change is natural for a dune. If left to nature, they’re quite resilient and tend to recover from forces that erode away the sand. But we don’t know an awful lot about how these dunes recover. So Hakai scientists are watching the dunes drift, one sand grain at a time.
