Climate, desertification, and human activities



Climate, desertification, and human activities



Desertification: Environmental Degradation in and around Arid Lands: 141-163



Deserts are affected by both global climatic patterns and local conditions, and these can be influenced by man. The global mechanisms causing the natural formation of deserts are discussed, and local mechanisms are examined to show conditions needed for rain in deserts. Man's effects on these mechanisms are analyzed.
