    ManyMethods have been developed for assessment and mapping of desertification hazards, (Mashayekhan and Honardoust, ). (Kharin et al., ) prepared the desertification map of West Asia by presenting several methods for desertification assessment. (Zhu et al., , Sakcali et al., ). The David Lubin Memorial Library maintains one of the world's finest collections of resources on food, agriculture and international development. Researchers have access to a multitude of publications in subjects of FAO expertise, including published and unpublished FAO documentation.

      Desertification could be considered ultimate consequence of land degradation in an ecosystem. Iran with more than 75% arid and semi-arid areas involves fragile and susceptible ecosystems to desertification. We applied a statistical algorithm including regression trees and random forest techniques for determining main factors affecting desertification based on ESAs in Taybad Cited by: 2. Assessment and Mapping Desertification Risk in Roudab Region through mapping the risk of desertification. Initially, desertification damage map, Rudab region is divided into five classes so that class III covering percent of the area is the biggest .

    Future Climate Impact on the Desertification in the Dry Land Asia Using AVHRR GIMMS NDVI3g Data. by Lijuan Miao, Peilong Ye, Bin He, Lizi Chen and Xuefeng Cui in Remote Sens. , 7(4), Abstract: Dry Land Asia is the largest arid and semi-arid region in the northern hemisphere that suffers from land desertification. Key Words: desertification, desertification map About the Map: The Desertification Vulnerability map is based on a reclassification of the global soil climate map and global soil map. Possible Uses of the Map: Useful for teachers and students who are interested in the global distribution of desertification vulnerability. Global modelers may be able to use the data for small scale analysis.

Desertification susceptibility assessment (DSA) plays a critical role in reasonable desertification prevention planning by mapping the extent, intensity, and classification of desertification.

Gad, A. & Shalaby, A. National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences, Egypt. Abstract. Desertification is one of the fundamental problems that threaten many arid and semi-arid areas.

The formulationFile Size: KB. desertification defined as: Land degradation in arid, semi arid and dry sub humid affected by climate changes and human activities (Khosravi et al, ). Many Methods have been developed for assessment and mapping of desertification hazards, (Mashayekhan and Honardoust, ).

In. Desertification affects the livelihoods of millions of people, as it occurs on all continents (except Antarctica). Desertification takes place in drylands all over the world. Some 10 to 20% of all drylands may already be degraded, but the precise extent of desertification is difficult to. A provisional methodology for assessment and mapping of desertification was formulated [2,3] and is now used for local and regional assessment and mapping [4,5].

Most of the studies assess the desert based on the desert topography, vegetation coverage and wind by: 2. mapping on desertification and drought in the Mediterranean countries at scale 1: This is part of the project Desertification Information System to Support National Action Programmes in the Mediterranean (DISMED), where the EEA is involved.

Since March a Working group on sensitivity mapping on desertification and drought. Land Degradation and Desertification: Assessment, Mitigation, and Remediation reports research results in sustainable land management and land degradation status and mitigation in 36 countries around the world.

It includes background papers with continental and international perspectives dealing with land degradation and desertification studies.4/5(1).

desertification process w 79 and 74 %, respectively (table 2). Desertification map (Fig. 2) shows that areas more sensible to desertification are founded in the center part of watershed, where vegetation and soil qualities are low. 45% of watershed presents high to very high risk desertification while 26%.

Abstract- This study focused on the assessment and evaluation of land degradation and desertification in Wadi Al Kanger area, Khartoum State, Sudan. The goal of this study was monitoring and mapping the land use and land cover (LU/LC) in relation to drought, sand encroachment and land degradation processes.

Moreover, the. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. The author presents the criteria for measuring wind erosion according to "Provisional Methodology for Assessment and Mapping of Desertification", FAO, (p.

5). The importance of assessing and monitoring states and processes of desertification at local or higher levels was recognized under the PACD and pursued in the s by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), who developed a provisional methodology for assessment and mapping of.desertification is land degradation in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas resulting from various factors, including climatic variations and human activities.

An exact assessment of the extent of land degradation remains elusive both because of the difficulties involved in measuring it and because of the different definitions used over Size: KB.Provisional methodology for assessment and mapping of desertification / Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations [and] United Nations Environment Programme, Global Environmental Monitoring System.
