With images provided by satellites, a new analytical tool for observing the landscape of a region is now at our disposal. In the field of aeolian dynamics, satellite data have provided a new means for the study of sand seas and the interpretation of the direction of sand transport. These newly perceived relation-ships between the Sahara and surrounding climatic zones and the dynamics between the Sahara and its semi-arid margins are discussed in this chapter.
