January/February Cover Photo: Sand Dunes – Death Valley. This area of sand dunes, located at Mesquite Flat in Death Valley National Park, California, is one of the few in North America with large, well-developed dunes. Sediments derived from the Cottonwood Mountains to the north and west are transported into the valley in the huge alluvial fans visible in the middle distance. Grains of quartz and feldspar are reworked by strong winds in the valley bottom to form dunes up to 30 m in height. The Funeral Mountains on the horizon consist of Precambrian metamorphic rocks, Cambrian to Mississippian sedimentary rocks and Miocene to Recent sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Photo: Gary Prost
