Investigation of biopolymer mulch effects on water holding capacity in sand (case study: sand dunes of Kashan)

Mohsen Asadollahi; Mohammad Jafari; vahid sayare; Ali esmaeili; Mohammad Tahmoures

Volume 74, Issue 2 , September 2021, , Pages 233-243


  Wind erosion is one of the most important aspects of land degradation in arid and semi-arid regions, which 20% of land area of the world has been influenced by wind erosion. The wind increases the desertification process by displacing sand dunes. Therefore, the stabilizition and preventing the moving ...  Read More

Volume 69, Issue 2 , July 2016, , Pages 461-473


  Aerosol impact on people health, social and economic activities, land and water ecosystems and meteorological parameter. The GOCART scheme was evaluated for simulating PM10 in this study. GOCART was run into WRF model as a host model. Reanalysis data from FNL for every 6 hour was used for initial conditions. ...  Read More

Effects of cement mulch combinations on sand dunes fixation

Mohammad Reza Ekhtesasi; Fateme Hazirei

Volume 68, Issue 4 , January 2016, , Pages 739-750


  Mulching is one of the methods of sand movement control to prepare condition for permanent fixation. Oil mulches have been used in Iran. Because of high cost and negative environmental impacts of oil mulches, changes in mulches type and mulching methods is vital. Therefore, for the first time in Iran, ...  Read More

LADA method Performance evaluation on soil degradation assessment in the East of Esfahan

Behzad Rayegani; Gholamreza Zehtabian; Hossein Azarnivand; seyed kazem alavipanah; Sayed Jamaleddin Khajeddin

Volume 68, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 109-129


    Soil is one of the main non-renewable natural resources in the world and its degradation is considered as a major threat around the globe because it reduces the productivity capacity of soil variability and makes the environment instable in the long turn. Soil degradation has three different ...  Read More

Investigation of Sand Drift Potential by Wind (Case Study: Kashan Plain)

Tayyebeh Mesbahzadeh; Hassan Ahmadi

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, , Pages 411-422


  Sand dunes mobility is one of the serious problems in arid regions. Since wind regime is one of the important factors in sand dunes formation, its frequency, direction and magnitude can be effective. Amount of wind energy and its directional variability (wind regime) have significant control on the morphology ...  Read More
