A similitude model of a sand dune was erected at the Agricultural Research and Education Center of the United Arab Emirates University. The model was used to study the contribution of synthetic resin emulsion spray on dune stabilization and vegetation growth. Dune stabilization was studied in terms of control of shifting sand and effect on topographic changes. Vegetative growth was assessed using transplanted trees of two locally adapted species :
