I have not found the citation yet but this type of dune remnant with a regular pattern of sinks and wind sculpted form are the result of inundation by sea level rise and slow fall. The dunes are loosely solidified by the slow absorption of water. The solidifying process was the result of carbonates and other sea water precipitates cementing grains of sand and loess into a "frozen" dune structure. The soft structuring could have occurred from wind, flash flooding or subsequent sea level rise flooding. You can see that the structures are in the lowest part of the pan that leads to the Mediterranean. I see some minor dune structures over the nearby landing strip. The roads and pipeline seem to have been kept clear. This is the general region where the B-24 "Lady be Good" was located.

Found it. No. Not Mrs. Neusbaum's credit card. I found the citation for the land forms.
