This article needs additional citations for verification. Arabic and Hebrew term ripple drapes referring to a valley. The term wādī is very widely found in Arabic toponyms. In basin and range topography, wadis trend along basin axes at the terminus of fans.
Wind also plays its role in deposition. When wadi sediments are underwater or moist, wind sediments are deposited over them. Thus wadi sediments contain both wind and water sediments. Wadi sediments may contain whole range from gravel to mud.
There is also wide range of sedimentary structures. Thus, wadi sediments are most diagnostic of all other desert environments. Flash floods represents severe energy conditions and results in wide range of sedimentary structures, including ripples and commonly plane beds. Gravels common display imbrications, Mud drapes show desiccation cracks. Wind activity also generates its own sedimentary structures, large scales cross-stratification and wedge shape cross-sets are present. Triassic wadi deposit near Ogmore-By-Sea, Wales. Modern English usage differentiates a wadi from another canyon or wash by the action and prevalence of water.
Wadis, as drainage courses, are formed by water, but are distinguished from river valleys or gullies in that surface water is intermittent or ephemeral. Wadis are generally dry year round, except after a rain. Wadis tend to be associated with centers of human population because sub-surface water is sometimes available in them. Nomadic and pastoral desert peoples will rely on seasonal vegetation found in wadis, even in regions as dry as the Sahara, as they travel in complex transhumance routes. The centrality of wadis to water — and human life — in desert environments gave birth to the distinct sub-field of wadi hydrology in the 1990s.
Deposition in a wadi is rapid because of the sudden loss of stream velocity and seepage of water into the porous sediment. Wadi deposits are thus usually poorly sorted gravels and sands. These sediments are often reworked by eolian processes. Over time, wadi deposits may become “Inverted Wadis” where the presence at one time of underground water caused vegetation and sediment to fill in the wadi’s eroded channel, to the point that previous washes appear as ridges running through desert regions.

Kirby stops and turns around to look at the King who shakes his head pleadingly. Ignoring him, Kirby continues to walk over to the Fountain with the king still hanging on him. The first time the Fountain of Dreams was seen in the series was in Kirby’s Adventure. Prior to the events of the game, Nightmare had taken residence in the Fountain of Dreams, forcing King Dedede to remove the Star Rod and split it into seven pieces, giving one piece to each of his trusted friends, and keeping one part for himself. Should Kirby prevail against Dedede, he is crowned Avalanche Champion of the Dream Fountain Cup. Fountain, in place of the Star Rod. Kirby’s Adventure or merely a coincidence is unknown.
The Fountain of Dreams reappears in Kirby Super Star, specifically in the Milky Way Wishes sub-game. In the introduction of said sub-game, the Fountain emits a bright beacon into the sky before the narration reveals that the Sun and Moon of Kirby’s home planet, Popstar, are fighting each other. Marx asks Kirby to summon the great comet Nova in an attempt to restore peace to the sun and moon. To do this, Kirby had to awaken the power of each Fountain of Dreams of seven other nearby planets to gather the surrounding stars.
Kirby would soon find out that this was a difficult task however, and it would be all for naught after Marx uses Nova for his own selfish desires. Meta Knight would also carry out the same task later on in Meta Knightmare Ultra, only this time to get Nova to summon the all-powerful warrior known as Galacta Knight for him to fight. Ironically, Meta Knight does not visit each planet’s Fountain of Dreams. As pointed out in the Fountain of Dreams Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Kirby Super Star confirmed that the Fountain of Dreams on Popstar isn’t unique, and that there are other identical fountains on other planets strewn across the galaxy. Fountain of Dreams is the eleventh stage in Kirby Fighters Deluxe. The arena uses its appearance from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby Super Star Ultra.
