Abstract:

Both the wind and rain erosion processes are among the most prominent morpho-climatic processes, the effects of which are more clearly demonstrated in arid and semi-arid environments. Since the study area is part of these environments, the features of these two processes become clearer, as the rates of precipitation or wind erosion witness a clear increase in their amounts. At very high rates, specifically during the summer (June, July, and August), and annual rates at Badra, Al-Kut, Al-Hay, and Al-Aziziya stations amounted to (2641.8, 7805, 1158.4, 7548.7), respectively. This rise, by nature, is accompanied by strong wind pressure on the surface of the soil, which helps in its disintegration and fragmentation, and annual rates. High, and on the other hand, rain erosion is weak according to the application of equations and statistical methods used for the purpose of measuring it, with the exception of the eastern part of the study area represented by Badra station, which witnessed differences in recording rain erosion rates due to the increase in rainfall amounts compared to other stations.
