AbstractCoastal dunes are formed when winds gather the dry sands from beaches and carry it inland. The repeated scouring of surface sand and its deposit in other areas does more to shape the diverse hillocks and depressions characteristic of certain coastal areas than any other physical factor. For fifty years we have been battling the sand dunes at Vera Cruz. Some observations made from the experience gained over these years may be of interest.
