‘Desert landscapes’ describes the variety to be found in deserts across the world. Some deserts are flat and unchanging, while others feature dramatic dune ranges punctuated by shallow lakes. The Grand Canyon (USA) and Uluru (Australia) are world-famous desert attractions but how were these landscapes made? How is sand created? What is a desert pavement? What is the difference between a shield desert and a basin-and-range desert? Desert features such as dunes (which can be categorized, their shapes identified, and their dramatic movement monitored), rivers, alluvial fans, yardangs (huge landforms that can be seen from satellites, sculpted by the wind), lakes, wetlands, volcanoes, impact craters, soils, and badlands are explained.
