Causes and progression of desertification
The book presents what desertification is, why it is important, what studies have been carried out already. It provides an overview on the research design used, explaining the general methodology, data selection procedure, and data analysis, giving data statistics, and discussing data bias. It also provides an overview on the frequency of occurrence of major land use categories per broad geographic regions. Finally it is concluded with a short outlook on the future design of case studies, namely case study comparisons to explore the dynamical causal patterns of desertification.
