No. Recent study shows that ice is formed around the rocks and when the local water level rises, the rocks are buoyantly floated off the soft bed thus reducing the reaction and friction forces at the bed. The minimal friction below the rock from the ice/almost frozen water reduces the friction and hence moves from random gusts of light/strong winds.

Small amounts of ice form at night (deserts get cold at night) and the wind blows it. The ice allows it to move, but its still a heavy rock, so a bit of trail is left.

That is a theory that has never been observed or proven
(the theory is the water from melting snow from surrounding mountains i think)

okay see smarty pants, if its ice you need water for ice, where exactly is this water to cause the ice from my knowing and seeing there is no water to form ice

Or moisture in the atmosphere. Like how dew forms.

Actually it's the wind. They figured it out ages ago.

Actually that's just a hypothesis. Though wind has to do with it. Thin layer of ice forms around the rocks and causes little friction, so they can move around while also leaving a trail.

they move because where they are floods and the rocks are moved by the water current, then it dries up and the trails remain

I heard that it was due to ice.

Before anyone becomes a retard, ice does exist in deserts

but wouldn't the water and Ice wash away part if not most of the trail?
