Climatic changes and desertification in some regions of the Middle East

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper is an attempt to investigate temperature and rainfall data in 3 countries of the Middle East (Oman, Bahrain, and Sudan) to determine if any change has taken place in the weather conditions. The short term environmental impact of the Gulf War has been included in the study. The study confirms that temperatures are rising and rainfall is decreasing in Oman and other two countries, leading to increasing desertification processes. A brief geographical discussion of Oman, Bahrain, and Sudan precedes a detailed analysis of temperatures and rainfall regimen in all 3 countries
