Shapotou District ( 沙坡头区) is a district of Zhongwei, Ningxia Province, China, noted for the Tengger Desert. It is the site of the world-renowned Shapotou Desert Experimental Research Station. The research station is located at the southern end of the dune sea on the banks of the Yellow River. Research at station includes dune stabilization using grasses and microbial mats. Regions stabilized in the 1950s are now used for fruit and vine crops. Sand dune stabilization in the region is required to curtail burial of the trans-Asia Baotou–Lanzhou Railway.
