Présentation
The Access to Geography series provides a concise and readable introduction to Geography topics for both the student and teh general reader. Arid and Semi-Arid Environments focuses upon major themes in the study of desert landscapes, processes and landforms.
The book considers the physical causes of aridity, the desert hydrological cycle and the problems of water supply. Particular attention is paid to desert ecosystems and how they are related to aridity. A detailed study is made of the wide range of landforms which are unique to desert areas and how they were formed. Evidence in the landscape of past climates is examined in relation to the current debate on desertification. the text is illustrated with up-to-date case studies from both LEDCs and MEDCs which also look at the economic potential of arid environments.
