Dune(s): Fiction, History, Science (website).

What connects Dune, the sci-fi book, to dunes, the natural ecosystems? The answer is the shifting sands of the Oregon coast. This is the story of the dunes stabilization programs developed on the US Northern Pacific Coast, that influenced Frank Herbert to write his great novel. (From the Story Map)
