The Advisory Committee for Arid Zone Research recommended that UNESCO publish a volume which would present the important elements to be considered in a preliminary survey of arid or semiarid land, as a basis for development plans. The recommendation was adopted and this book is the result. Each chapter, written by an authority in his field, is devoted to a principal subject. The new edition of Arid Zone Geomorphology aims to encapsulate the advances that have been made in recent years in the investigation and explanation of landforms and geomorphological processes in drylands. Building on the success of the previous two editions, the Third Edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field. It was our intention to provide an understanding of the basic principles governing irrigation technology and to help overcome the problem of water shortage in arid zone agriculture.

Part of the Sustainable Development and Biodiversity book series (SDEB, volume 18) Abstract Hot arid zones with their climatic extremes, poor shallow soils, deep, often saline water, and unpredictable weather are stressed areas for vegetation to survive and grow, more so . Arid geomorphological research continues apace with publications appearing in a diverse range of outlets. Themes common to several recent (–) books include greater emphasis on the global diversity of arid environments, the improved temporal framework for research findings, and the growing contribution of arid geomorphology to interdisciplinary research fields. The hot arid zone lying west of Rajasthan occupies the largest area (20 million ha) of the arid ecosystem of the country, and is popularly known as Thar desert. The hot arid region is characterized by scarce natural resources and an inhospitable climate. Rainfall varies from less than mm to mm, and is highly erratic and unpredictable.
