The research on wind regimes and the wind protection mechanism of sand-fixing plants has mainly relied on wind tunnel experiments; few observations have been made in the field. At the same time, airflow around individual standing vegetation elements and communities is relatively lacking in alpine semi-arid deserts. This tool is especially applicable to the study of the deserts and arid lands of the Earth because of their immense size and their inaccessibility to detailed study by conventional means. In this book examples are given of the utility of aerial photographs and space images in the study of semi-arid, arid, and hyper-arid terrains.

Deserts (arid lands /drylands) constitute about 35% of the land areas of the world and are typically characterized by rainfall scarcity, higher temperatures and evapotranspiration, lower humidity, and a general paucity of vegetation cover.A unique combination of atmospheric, geologic, and geomorphic conditions is responsible for the formation of deserts primarily between the Tropics of Cancer.
Deserts– barren areas that receive little rain and offer harsh living conditions– are not the first landscapes that spring to mind for most people considering where to go on vacation.
But there are 33 major deserts, from subtropical and cool coastal to cold winter deserts. Wind is a characteristic environmental feature in deserts.

Considering that semi-arid deserts are located along the equator, the climate is dry and humid with little to no rain.
The temperature can go as low as 50 degrees Fahrenheit during the night, but the average temperatures in semi-arid deserts ranges from degrees Fahrenheit.Deserts are often used as nuclear waste dump sites, as they are used for nuclear testing.
Weather The summers in a Semiarid Desert are usually long and dry, and the winters normally have little rainfall. Summer temperatures are between °C on average, normally not going above 38° C.
Surprisingly, water is an important agent of erosion in arid lands. Although streams may only be active during and right after a heavy rain, running water during a flash flood can carry tremendous amounts of material.
