This paper describes the existence and maintenance (a day at least) of some unusual crescentic dunes on a frozen beach at Schiermonnikoog. These crescentic dunes displayed a markedly aerodynamic shape, and had a plan view similar to that of barchans, but their morphology was the reverse of that for typical barchans
