Image Caption:
Simpson Desert Sandfield

Dark colors in the foreground are stony desert surfaces made of
iron-stained soils. Sands from local river beds make up the
linear dunes of the sandfield (center). The Warburton River (ar-
rows) crosses the dunes to Lake Eyre (top left). Lakes--such as
Warrandarinna and Kittakittaooloo (1, 2)--within the dune field
are located along previous courses of the Warburton and in hol-
lows between the dunes. (S08-341153)
