Caption: Aerial photograph of sand dunes in the Rub al Khali - the "Empty Quarter", one of the World's most extreme deserts. Located between Oman and South Yemen to the south and southern Saudi Arabia to the north, the Rub al Khali occupies a region measuring 1300km by 500km. The Rub al Khali supports few plants or animals and no permanent human settlements; its major features are large, elongated sand dunes. The winding sand dune in centre of image is a seif dune, a long ridge of soft, dry, wind-blown sand that may be blown into a formation up to 150 metres high.
