  • DESERTIFICATION IN EUROPE. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INFORMATION SYMPOSIUM IN THE EEC PROGRAMME ON CLIMATOLOGY, HELD IN MYTILENE, GREECE, 15-18 APRIL 1984

Abstract

Desertification, for the concepts here discussed best defined + after Rapp + as "the spread of desert-like conditions in arid and semi-arid areas up to 600 mm, due to man's influence or to climatic change", is a degradation process which deserves being studied in any of its phases because of the dangers involved. This volume contains the proceedings of the information symposium in the EEC Programme on Climatology, held at Mytilene, Greece, on 15-18 April 1985, under the sponsorship of the Commission of the EC Directorate General for Science, Research and Development. The papers submitted are grouped according to their focus on factors and processes of desertification, and on criteria, methods and programmes with which to react to desertification, respectively. A third group of contributions represent case studies. The great majority of contributions focus on the Mediterranean area, a few on Northern European circumstances, e.g. the contributions on Waldsterben and on soil erosion in Denmark.
