serenete commented on the word hamada
... a type of desert landscape made up of largely barren, hard, rocky plateaus, with very little sand. A hamada may sometimes also be called a reg, though this more properly refers to a stony plain rather than a highland.
Hamadas exist in contrast to ergs, which are large areas of shifting sand dunes.

An erg is a sandy desert vs a rocky one (hamada); see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/erg.
