DescriptionMany historical indications of the eastern Mediterranean Basin exhibit climatic changes or alterations effecting the status of water resources, hence, effecting human-kind and the quality of life. It is essential to deeply understand the nature of climates and geological structures employing state of the art techniques to assess rainfall, runoff, and floods that replenish groundwater in arid regions of the Middle East. The integrated watershed management approach being implemented in the Azraq Basin of eastern Jordan presents a unique opportunity to study the effectiveness of this approach to land and water management. Development and sustainable use of the available resources in this basin is essential for the future.
