Résumé partiel
Recently Shalatein area has got more governmental interests and is regarded as one of the most promising regions for desert development due to its strategic location and as tourism, fishery, animal husbandry and mining activity. It is characterized by arid to semiarid climatic condition, which is marked by low precipitation and high evaporation intensities. Shalatein is suffered for several decades from intensive aridity, over-grazing and desertifications. The study area lies to the east of the basement rocks at the outlets of Wadi Hodein, Wadi Sefeira and Wadi Sha’b to the south of Shalatein town. It is geographically located between latitudes 22° 50` and 23° 05` N and longitudes 35° 20` and 35° 35` E. The entire area represents a huge catchment area, which is drained by wadis and its tributaries into the Red Sea. The main collecting water is based on occasionally heavy showers of rainfall storms along the Sand Stone plateau and the Basement Mountains. The geomorphologic features in the study area can be classified into the three morphological units that are the basement mountainous area which occupies the western part of the study area, the coastal plain which comprises many different subgeomorphic units such as sand sheets and piedmont plain to the west and Sabkhas to the east and the hydrographic drainage basins which most of them drain the catchment area along the Red Sea mountains into the Red Sea such as Wadi Rahaba, Wadi Hodein, Wadi Sefeira and Wadi Sha’b. The surface of the study area is built mainly of Precambrian basement rocks, which are faulted up against Upper Cretaceous Nubia Sandstone. The Quaternary deposits occupy the surface of low-lying channels and the Piedmont and Coastal Plain. They are formed mainly of alluvial deposits.
