This is a transitional type of dune landscape between fixed dunes and fluid dunes. Semi-fixed dunes have low mobility, but under certain conditions, they can transform into a fluid dune or a fixed dune. The ecological environment associated with a semi-fixed dune zone is very fragile. Protective measures should be implemented to turn them into fixed dunes (Fig. 19).
