Aeolian sedimentation in arid and semi-arid environments of Western Mongolia.- Ostracod ecology of alluvial loess deposits in an eastern Tian Shan palaeo lake (NW China).- Critical remarks on the interpretation and publication of physical age data and on the problem of teleconnections in the comparison of global climatic events. Water scarcity is a major problem in this arid area, especially during the summer. The springs Ein as-Sultan, Ayn al-Nuway'mia and Ayn al Duyuk were utilised during the Roman occupation for irrigation to cultivate the land. After the water from the spring Ein as-Sultan was collected in four small orate: Jericho. Arid and semi-arid regions face major challenges in the management of scarce freshwater resources under pressures of population, economic development, climate change, pollution and over-abstraction. Groundwater is commonly the most important water resource in these areas. Groundwater models are Price: $

INTRODUCTION The following conception has been developed within the framework of the German Special Research Project: "Geoscientific problems of arid areas"*, the working region of which is the southern part of Egypt and the northern Sudan.

No geodetic networks of high order are present in most arid : U.K. Gehlich, O. Hirsch. Among the problems facing arid lands is the global climatic trend towards an increase in temperatures (global warming), which would lead to an increase in aridity and a Arid areas with areas have annual precipitation up to Arid Lands: Challenges and Hopes - Barakat H.N.

This volume focuses on approaches towards a better understanding of the geological, hydrogeological and paleoclimatic evolution of Northeast Africa.

Constraints in Arid Region The soils of arid region are very poor in availability of nutrients, water holding capacity, etc. The soils of the north-western arid region described as ‘desert soils’, and ‘grey brown soils’ of the Order Aridisols, are light textured.

Bodies of drifting sand represent one of the serious problems of land use in arid regions all over the world: they over- whelm settlements, fields, oases, roads, etc.

To arrest the movement of these bodies (stabilization of sand dunes) is one objective of arid-zone programmes at national and regional by: A main problem in arid and semiarid regions is the water use for agriculture. Figure 10 shows that in a lot of countries the most proportion of fresh water is used for it.

These are few common problems of dryland agriculture and farming community. The ultimate responsibility is on government shoulder for backing the farmers in these areas.

This is because of the poverty and lack of resources which is common in arid or dryland farming system. The programme focuses on socio-economic development in the arid areas, the under developed hinterland of South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

In South Africa, the Karoo straddles four provinces: the Western Cape, the Northern Cape, the Eastern Cape, and the Free State. In Botswana, it includes the Kalahari, and in Namibia, the Namib Desert.

Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems (GI) is a not-for-profit open-access interdisciplinary electronic journal for swift publication of original articles and short communications in the area of geoscientific instruments. Management of Problem Soils in Arid Ecosystems examines the challenges of managing soils in arid and semiarid regions.

These soils contain low organic matter, are not leached, and accumulate lime, gypsum, and/or soluble salts, requiring special management and by: Especially the arid and semi-arid areas have extensive salinity problems.

Waterlogging and salinization of soils are common problems associated with surface irrigation. Waterlogging results primarily from inadequate drainage and over-irrigation and, to a lesser extent, from seepage from canals and ditches.
