Figure 3. View of Cooper Creek and the linear dunes of the Strzelecki Desert from the air. Today Cooper Creek is a mud dominated system, but in the past it would have transported abundant sands, which were then re-worked by wind to form the dunes. A sinuous palaeochannel would have onced flowed at the bottom of the photograph, supplying the sand for the linear dunes in the main part of the photograph.
