Man made Aperture Radar (SAR) is necessary for distant sensing. it really works day and evening, in reliable climate or undesirable. Bistatic SAR is a brand new type of SAR approach, the place the transmitter and receiver are put on separate structures. Bistatic SAR is among the most vital traits in SAR improvement, because the know-how renders SAR extra versatile and more secure whilst utilized in army environments.

The locations Bilma and some mountains and mountain chains Tassali N’Ajjer (TN), Tibesti (T), Hoggar (H), Air (AIR), Adrar des Iforhas (AI) and Ennedi (E) have strategic importance for the dust transport. Shaded are the areas of high TOMS absorbing aerosol index identiﬁed by Prospero et al. 4. Dust emission from four diﬀerent sources and the entire Sahara and Sahel region in Mt for each month, the data are averaged for two years. Total A are the results of D’Almeida (1986) for 1981 and 1982 and Total B are the results of Marticorena et al.
It seems that although the Tarim Basin has a high concentration of airborne dust, it may not be a big dust supplier to the global atmosphere. Dust emitted from the basin mostly deposits back to the basin. This is in contrast to the Gobi Desert where dust entrained into the atmosphere is advected downstream. The combined eﬀects of intense frontal systems and the topography can generate extremely severe dust storms in the Hexi Corridor. To illustrate this, the system responsible for the 5 May 1993 extreme dust storm is depicted in Fig.
Most of the world’s dry lands are concentrated on the major continents in the subtropical region between 20◦ and 30◦ in both hemispheres, except those in East Asia in higher latitudes around 40◦ N. 6% as semi-arid (Cooke, 1973). The vegetation cover in the world is closely related to the availability of water for plant growth. As an example, Fig. 9 shows the distribution of leaf-area index over the globe for March 2004. Leaf-area index is deﬁned as the total one-sided leaf area over a unit ground-surface area and is an indicator of the vegetation cover.
