Wandering dunes

Andrew KHAUSTOV:

Sand dunes can travel. And, quite successfully. A few meters per year armada they come to the village, the forest and the sea, sweeping away all obstacles in its path.

How is this possible? And what strength to conquer the sand dunes of living space?See in this photo report. I say at once, it will be hot:

Staroderevenskaya dune near the present sea of elite cottage settlement (near the border with Lithuania) swallowed whole fishing village in the 60's. 20th century. And this, at least for 1000 years happened repeatedly with the Prussian and Soviet settlements in this

The most important impact of coastal natural areas for protection from disasters

July 19, 2013. According to a recent study conducted at the Stanford Woods Institute, dunes and reefs are critical to protect millions of residents and the United States, and billions of dollars from the estate of coastal storms. Extreme weather events, sea level rise and lives in degraded coastal systems, from all of this will help to protect nature.

The study, "The coastal habitats shield protects people and property ownership from sea-level rise and storms," published July 14 in the journal «Nature Climate Change», offers the first comprehensive map of the entire U.S. coast. It shows where and how protected

Presented a picture posted on a website belonging to the U.S. government. The photograph shows a portion of the surface of Mars, covered with sand dunes. On the tops of the dunes are clearly visible formation, similar to the plant. When we look at some of them look like cacti, others on the pine. Some of the "pine tree" toppled as taiga trees affected by

Unusual Mars, trees, man, huge canyons

19.01.2010

The Red Planet has attracted mankind like no other celestial body. While traveling to this world can only electronic and mechanical machines, but because of them the opportunity to look at what is out there, is not available to the naked eye on the surface located millions of miles (the distance from Earth to Mars varies between 56-400 million km) of the planet . Interestingly all: how Mars was before (found that once existed waters) whether and what kind of life that lies beneath the surface now.

Titan is incredibly similar to Earth

27.01.2012

 

Just did earthly landscapes and then photographs the U.S. Space probe Cassini, located near Saturn.

Near the north pole of Titan — a satellite of the planet, almost the size of our moon, scientists have spotted many large lakes connected by channels. Surface of some stretches for more than a hundred kilometers. And it is clear that something flows in channels. The terrain is very reminiscent of Karelia, Finland or Canada.

On Mars, found traces of nuclear war?

06.10.2012

 

The surface of the Red Planet changed into glass Monstrous heat On a glassy Mars told American geologists Briony Hogan and Jim Bell of the University of Arizona. The pictures transmitted by the probe Mars Express, as if they could see melted dunes. Scientists have suggested that the glass is covered with dunes, formed as a result of volcanic eruptions. That, in their opinion, conclusively proves that Mars was a turbulent volcanic past. As a result, glass steel, a total
