HeidelErg – live from the Erg Chebbi in Morocco (#2): Exploring physical geography and 3D GIScience in an aeolian sand dune field.

After the participants of the practical field training had arrived in Fès yesterday and spent the evening there, the group is now on the way to the Erg Chebbi east of the Anti-Atlas mountains. Thereby, the group passes various gemorphologic landscape units including the Western Meseta, Middle Atlas and High Atlas mountains. Moreover, we crossed the watersehd between the catchment area of Moulouya river draining to the Mediterranean Sea and Souss river draining into the Atlantic Ocean.

Tomorrow, data acquisition will start in the Erg. We will keep you updated with further posts.
