A yardang in the Algerian desert. A feature caused by wind erosion. The ‘pedestal’ effect is created by wind-blown sand whose cutting force is strongest near ground level.

Wave Rock is a natural rock formation located east of the small town of Hyden in Western Australia. The 'wave' formation was formed 60 million years ago and the shape of the rock is not caused by a wave phenomenon, rather its rounded wave-like shape was formed by subsurface chemical weathering followed by removal of the soft weathered granite by fluvial erosion, thus the weathering occurred below ground level before it was exposed.
