Abstract

By a dune we mean a low hill of drifting sand usually formed on the sea-coast or shore of large inland lakes. Along the sea-coast the movement of the tide, the flow of which is more rapid than the ebb, tends to carry sand beyond the action of the waves, where it is caught by sea winds and carried up the beach to be piled in dunes and hills.
