Desert features are characterized by the fact that they arise in dry climates. Under such conditions, it is the absence of water (and ice) that is the most important fact. Thus, wind remains the essential exogenic agent. The action of wind consists in the transportation of loose materials, mostly sand grains, sometimes of dust particles, and in the abrasion of surfaces by blown sand.
