Caption: Couple walking on a windswept sandy beach on the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. Huge sand dunes in the Namib Desert are seen on the horizon. This region is extremely arid as it lies in a region of near-permanent high atmospheric pressure caused by descending dry air. Offshore, the cold Benguela Current flows northwards carrying cool water from the deep South Atlantic Ocean. The upwelling of this cold, nutrient-rich water off the coast supports a rich marine ecosystem, in contrast to the near-lifeless land onshore. Coastal fogs provide the only source of moisture for the sparse terrestrial life.
