"Dunes" in context

Dunes are wind-blown formations of sand that are typically found in beaches, deserts, and other areas with dry climates. They are created by the wind when it pushes the sand up the land and into piles. Dunes come in many sizes, from small mounds just a few inches high to giant mountains of sand towering hundreds of feet into the air. Dunes provide home for many species and help stabilize the coastline from strong waves, preventing beach erosion. Dunes can also provide habitats for rare wildlife, making them a valuable conservation resource. Additionally, many dunes have been formed by coastal cities, creating unique locations for tourists to explore and enjoy.
