    This book focuses on developing an integrated holistic approach for harnessing the potential of rain-fed agriculture. In this approach, rainwater management through harvesting and recharging the groundwater is used as an entry point activity for increasing the productivity for farmers through enhanced water use . Mediterranean or semi-arid climate results from a combination of: the character of the rainfall (irregularly distributed in time and space and sometimes very intense), the heterogeneous topography, and high anthropogenic pressures. Owing to these conditions, planning water resources use and management for both traditional and.

    Soil Management and Climate Change: Effects on Organic Carbon, Nitrogen Dynamics, and Greenhouse Gas Emissions provides a state of the art overview of recent findings and future research challenges regarding physical, chemical and biological processes controlling soil carbon, nitrogen dynamic and greenhouse gas emissions from soils. This book is for students and academics in soil science and. It is not even, as some more cautious observers would have it, "semi-arid." At least not under the most commonly used system of climate classification, the Köppen system, in use in one form or another since before the above letter-writer predicted a jackrabbit Reconquista on Colorado Boulevard.

    Desertification results from the degradation of the natural ecosystems in drylands and constitutes a major global problem (UNEP, ). It is defined by the CCD as “Land use degradation in arid, semi-arid and dry humid areas resulting from various factors, including climatic variation and human activities”. The degradation can be: TABLE 2. A steppe is a dry, grassy s occur in temperate climates, which lie between the tropics and polar regions. Temperate regions have distinct seasonal temperature changes, with cold winters and warm summers. Steppes are semi-arid, meaning they receive 25 to 50 centimeters ( inches) of rain each is enough rain to support short grasses, but not enough for tall grasses or.

This book presents the most recent findings from the European Community's MEDALUS project, which was formed to understand and manage semi-arid environments that are undergoing great change. * Covers climate and land use processes and responses in the MediterraneanManufacturer: Wiley.

In book: Recent Dynamics of the Mediterranean Vegetation and Land use in semi-arid mediterranean climates. book, pp - 56 and “cavas” are the main land use. Climate data for the period problem in semi-arid.

1. Introduction. The Mediterranean region is one in which the climate, geomorphological changes and the impact of human activities have resulted in progressive degradation, ending in desertification which is especially problematic in high-stress zones (arid and semi-arid areas), due to their greater vulnerability (López-Bermúdez, ).Soil erosion affects the Mediterranean regions in Cited by: In the Mediterranean Landscape Dynamics project (MedLand), supported by the US National Science Foundation, 1 an interdisciplinary team of scientists have worked to develop a computational modelling laboratory for studying the long-term dynamics of land-use–landscape interactions in SESs across the Mediterranean.

We selected intensive study. Semiarid regions are a subtype of dry land with an aridity index (i.e., ratio of total annual precipitation to potential evapotranspiration) between and (Lal, ).Soils in semiarid regions have frequently been degraded by historical land use, resulting.

Desertification is a land degradation problem of major importance in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world. Land degradation and global climate change are closely related. Predicting the availability and quality of freshwater resources is a pressing concern in the Mediterranean area, where a number of agricultural systems depend solely on precipitation.

This study aims at predicting streamflow and nonpoint pollutant loads in a temporary river system in the Mediterranean basin (Sulcis area, Sardinia, Italy).

Monthly discharge, suspended sediment, nitrate nitrogen. The sensitivity of soil organic carbon to global change drivers, according to the depth profile, is receiving increasing attention because of its importance in the global carbon cycle and its potential feedback to climate change.

A better knowledge of the vertical distribution of SOC and its controlling factors—the aim of this study—will help scientists predict the consequences of global. Defining attributes of semi-arid climates. A more precise definition is given by the Köppen climate classification, which treats steppe climates (BSk and BSh) as intermediates between desert climates (BW) and humid climates in ecological characteristics and agricultural potential.

Semi-arid climates tend to support short or scrubby vegetation and are usually dominated by either grasses or shrubs. The semi-arid zone of Southwest Asia, known as the Fertile Crescent, is under unprecedented stress because of agricultural development.

Where rain-fed agriculture and transhumant herding had prevailed over ten millennia, today intensive cultivation with irrigation threatens future sustainability.

A number of interconnected, but uncoordinated drivers of change combine to shape the landscape and. This book brings together and integrates research from a wide range of disciplines, all focusing on aspects of the processes, causes, and effects of Mediterranean land degradation.

It forms an important part of the European Union's initiative to understand and manage semi-arid environments which are undergoing great s: 1. The semi-arid climate is further divided into two categories: hot and cold semi-arid climate. The two types of semi-arid climates can be delineated from each other by use of isotherms.

An isotherm is a line connecting two places with the same temperature. Hot semi-arid climates characterize the tropics and sub-tropics located in the 20s and 30s.

Desertification includes land degradation due to both climatic and anthropogenic causes, where land includes water, soil, and the biosphere.

Abandonment is an important factor in the Mediterranean landscape as vegetation regeneration is hampered due to the characteristic semi-arid and sub-humid Mediterranean climate regime. During the past 70 year extensive afforestation projects have been conducted with the aim to .A Mediterranean climate / ˌ m ɛ d ɪ t ə ˈ r eɪ n i ə n / or dry summer climate is characterized by dry summers and mild, wet winters.
