Christianity, which originated in the Middle East in the 1st century AD, is a significant minority religion within the region. Christianity in the Middle East is characterized by the diversity of its beliefs and traditions, compared to Christianity in other parts of the Old ians now make up approximately 5% of the total Middle Eastern population, down from 20% in the early 20th.

      Yemen’s national emblem depicts a relief of the Marib Dam, Yemen’s greatest manmade feature—and a coffee plant, Yemen’s most storied natural resource. This is no coincidence. Coffee drinking, as we know it today, originated in Yemen in the 15th century when Sufis discovered red coffee berries in the country’s mountain highlands.

      ~ The soil of the Sahara Desert is home to a drought-resistant herb called thyme (Genus: Thymus). ~ Apart from being a major food source for the animals of the desert, thyme is commonly used in African and Middle Eastern cuisines. ~ Medicinally, this herb is used for treating indigestion, respiratory infections, and spasms. Erosion • Even in deserts, the main agent of erosion is water. • Wind is a secondary agent of erosion. Fine sand grains are removed leaving behind coarser material. The process is called. deflation. and the material left behind forms a. desert pavement.

Desertification is a type of land degradation in drylands in which biological productivity is lost due to natural processes or induced by human activities whereby fertile areas become increasingly more arid.

It is the spread of arid areas caused by a variety of factors, such as through climate change (particularly the current global warming) and through the overexploitation of soil through. A desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and, consequently, living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life.

The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of one-third of the land surface of the world is arid or includes much of the polar regions, where little precipitation occurs.

A.S. Goudie, in Encyclopedia of Environmental Health, Desertification, the spread of desertlike conditions as a result of a combination of climatic fluctuations and human impacts, is a form of land degradation that occurs in and around the world's erable debate surrounds the speed, nature, and causes of desertification, but it undoubtedly has a series of health implications.

Erosion Control is defined as “any control method used to prevent loss of soil particles due to rain, wind, or water flow”. At Desert Mountain Corporation, we specialize in providing erosion control, dust control, road stabilization, and soil stabilization for our customers on a.

Wind-formed desert sand is too smooth for construction. Meanwhile, in the UK, the need for sand has dropped off as new construction cools and recyclables get a political push. The Middle East with its particular characteristics was not to emerge until the late second millennium AD. To refer to a concept similar to that of today's Middle East but earlier in time, the term Ancient Near East is used.

This list is intended as a timeline of the history of the Middle East. Suez Canal, Arabic Qanāt al-Suways, sea-level waterway running north-south across the Isthmus of Suez in Egypt to connect the Mediterranean and the Red seas.

The canal separates the African continent from Asia, and it provides the shortest maritime route between Europe and the lands lying around the Indian and western Pacific oceans.

It is one of the world’s most heavily used shipping. Controlling Wind-Caused Erosion. Low-water-demand trees and shrubs are the best defense against wind-caused erosion.

Most desert plants tend to be self-selecting natives or near-natives, needing alkaline soil, little water and high heat in most growing situations. Throughout the Near and Middle East and North Africa the land has been overgrazed for more than 1, years. What sheep will not eat, goats will, and what the goats leave, camels will graze.

How to Control Erosion. Erosion occurs when the top layer of soil is swept away by natural or man-made forces, making it extremely difficult to grow any vegetation on the site. Erosion can turn once healthy, vibrant land into arid, Views: K. 6 hours ago  Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus and Human-Camel Relationships in Qatar Qatar is a small peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Effective erosion control prevents soil loss caused by rain, wind and human activity. Some of the erosion control methods we employ are drainage piping, swales, riprap, matting, blankets and retaining walls. Riprap Rocks. Riprap (also called rip rap) is a very durable erosion control technique used to protect slope and channel areas from wind.

Pre-Islamic Arabia (Arabic: شبه الجزيرة العربية قبل الإسلام) is the Arabian Peninsula prior to the emergence of Islam in CE. Some of the settled communities developed into distinctive civilizations.

Information about these communities is limited and has been pieced together from archaeological evidence, accounts written outside of Arabia, and Arab oral. As little as 6, years ago, the vast Sahara Desert was covered in grassland that received plenty of rainfall, but shifts in the world's weather.

• This can cause the desert to expand into the semi arid lands in a process known as desertification. • The expansion and contraction of deserts is a natural response to global climate change, however human activity has accelerated the process.

• Globally deserts are advancing at ~70, km2 per year • In the past few decades millions. Environmental protection through engineering for erosion control. The protection of the environment has been a corporate goal since we first offered hydraulic works solutions and erosion control solutions over years ago.

This application area involves protecting vulnerable soils, reducing erosion through stabilisation. Gradual threats. By the end of this century, Turkey and the Middle East region are expected to have an increased mean temperature about 3–5 °C and a 20–40 % decline in precipitation.

The pace of hillslope and fluvial processes in the Atacama Desert is widely thought to be slower than most places on Earth. However, a growing regional catalog of erosion rates and exposure ages derived from TCN concentrations in bedrock, boulders, and sediment reveals active processes, likely of varying magnitude and duration, from the Miocene to the present (Dunai et al.Desertification in the arid regions of Asia is characterized by overgrazing of the rangelands of the Middle East and Central Asia, water erosion of cultivated lands from eastern China to the Mediterranean Sea, and salinization and waterlogging on a large scale in Iraq, Pakistan, China, and the Soviet Union.
