The size range of sand grains that make up dunes is remarkably close This is because grains that are smaller-than-sand-size (silt or clays) are carried farther away by the action of wind and water Grains or stones that are larger-than-sand-size (pebbles, cobbles, boulders, and the like) are left behind When...
