Types of Dunes Animation

This visualization is from Chapter 19 (The Work of Waves and Wind) of the animations section of the Instructor Companion Site for the Wiley Higher Education textbook (ISBN 0-471-23800-7) Physical Geography: Science and Systems of the Human Environment, Second Edition by Alan Strahler.
