Caption: Dune barrier testing. Researchers testing out a scale version of a dune barrier on a small barchan dune in the Sahara Desert, Morocco. Dune barriers are designed to help stop the shifting dunes from over-running local oases and infrastructure. This test will allow them to see how the dune behaves and whether the barrier will be sufficient to prevent its movement.
