Auther : Khalid M. AL-Rehali AL-Harbi

     The research discusses desertification processes in the Western Tabuk province, Saudi Arabia.  The main objective was to investigate and analyze desertification processes through using Landsat TM imagery from 1988 and 1999 and ancillary data, in conjunction with fieldwork to detect vegetation sites and human impact.  The results showed that spectral reflectance for dry soil and desert vegetation was considered an indication of desertification.  Ratio vegetation index ( RVI ) was utilized to produce the image of vegetation change and delineate degraded areas from non-degraded area.  Grazing and woodcutting have been observed and leading to affect the certain vegetation sites in the study area.
