Zalibekov Z.G., Mamaev S.A., BiarslanovA.B., Magomedov R.A., Asgerov D.B., Galimov W.M. ON THE USE OF FRESH GROUNDWATER IN ARID REGIONS OF THE WORLD IN THE FIGHT AGAINST DESERTIFICATION // Arid ecosystems. 2019. V. 25. № 2 (79). P. 3-12. | PDF
The theoretical basis and principles of the use of fresh groundwater (CLP) and their role in combating desertification and in developing the biological potential of drylands have been developed. Advantages of CLP in comparison with surface irrigation waters are revealed: protection from pollution, evaporation, protection of natural reserves and their natural renewability. The areas of arid lands on the continents, differences in the depth of CLP and the parameters of the recommended type of drip irrigation on the example of one of the arid regions of the Tersko-Kumsky artesian lowland are given. Natural renewal and occurrence close in comparison with conditions of Equatorial Africa to a surface of CLP in Delta-alluvial plains of Eurasia is shown.
Keywords: desertification, soil alkalinity, underground fresh water, drip irrigation, drought resistance, diaphragm method, deltaic plains.
