At Thursday’s Science Blogging Talkfest, I got chatting about booming sand dunes – sand that makes sounds like a didgeridoo. I said I’d dig out a video of scientists sliding down booming dunes on their butts. Well, I keep my promises.
You can find more information about research into the dunes on this website run by Professor Melany Hunt from Caltech, one of the scientists on the video. You can also hear dunes that burp, croak and whistle.
My piece explaining booming dunes will appear in a future issue of How It Works magazine.
