Description :
Sand dune movement was monitored in a sample plot along the desert-crossing highway by means of a topographical survey in late 1991, 1992 and 1993. The results reveal that most of the morphometric parameters of the dunes are not as well correlated as they are generally supposed to be. The advance rate of the dunes was controlled by the local wind regime and dune morphometry. However, the relationships between advance rate and the morphometric parameters of the dunes are variable for the immature dunes.
