The Magic Behind

Furthermore, desert in southern Israel, Negev is a rock-strewn desolate tract. It is a mélange of dark, stony, dusty hills cut off by wadis and deep craters. It can be dividing into five distinct environmental regions: to the north, western, and centered Negev, the high plateau and the Arabah Valley. For instance, the north Negev, or Mediterranean zone, obtains 300 mm of rainfall every year and has equitably fertile soils.

The western Negev desert obtains 250 mm of rainfall per year, with lightweight and to some extent sandy soils. Sand dunes can come to heights of up to 30 metres here. Home to the town of Beersheba, the centered Negev has a yearly precipitation of 200 mm and is distinguished by resistant dirt, permitting smallest penetration of water with larger dirt erosion and water runoff. The high plateau locality of Ramat HaNegev stands between 370 metres and 520 metres overhead ocean grade with farthest temperatures in summer and winter.

Yet, the southern desert in Israel is the locality which gets 100 mm of rainfall per year, with substandard along with in some measure brackish soils. The Arabah Valley is very arid with scarcely 50 mm of rainfall annually. It has inferior dirt in which little can augment without irrigation and exceptional dirt additives.
