Médano Blanco Coastal Dunes, Argentina
Narrow cordons of coastal dunes stretch for hundreds of kilometers along this part of Argentina’s coast. The Médano Blanco is not far from the arid and windy borderlands with Patagonia, one of the windiest places on Earth.

Every few days, in some places as often as twice a day, tractors roll along a hundred miles or so of sandy beaches in southern California, changing rich coastal habitats into barren plains of unstable sand.
