Desert – vast expanses of sand, stones and sometimes mountains. When you walk through the desert, everything seems the same: the dunes, dunes, dunes. Because of this uniformity,and a small number of visual cues, in the deserts is very difficult to navigate and keep the selected motion vector. Let’s try to understand how to effectively navigate the deserts, steppes and high plains.
In the desert a lot of Sunny days, so that the surest way to navigate by the Sun. Night – in the desert you can effectively navigate by the stars.
If you know how to blow the prevailing winds in this region, you can navigate to the configuration of dunes. The gentler slope of a dune or dune will be directed against the prevailing winds and steep – in the wind.
Rare desert plants can also serve for orientation.
To determine the direction of the desert – this is one part of the problem, but keep the direction and not go astray – other. And nobody knows that more difficult. When you stop to rest, be sure to put a little arrow to where to move, know the direction.
But driving through the desert, it’s easy go astray. Whether or regularly consult with the guidelines or periodically look back to make sure that your line is flat tracks. If the terrain is cut up the sand dunes – to keep the direction of their own to be very difficult.
