Modeling Water flow using DEM (Digital Elevation Models)

Water flow Analysis showing where micro Check dams can be located Grey areas show where water can be captured using micro-check dams so every major storm will refill the  reservoir. Dark lines represent large water flow areas were larger professionally engineered  dams are needed and are likely riparian zones. White areas are those where this…

Micro-Capture to increase food production in dryland areas

This article discusses a low cost way to increase the food production on desert and degraded lands while reducing the impact of droughts.  This is accomplished without increasing demand for ground water and can even help recharge the local aquifer.  This is accomplished by maximizing water retention on the land where rain water falls so…

Grow Dryland reverse desertfication, provide food, improve economics

Restore degraded and desertified land without Increasing Ground water demand Desertification is difficult but solvable Desertification is essentially degradation of soil so it can not longer support viable crops.  This is often complicated by reduced amount of water caused by dropping aquifer’s, drought and altered rainfall patterns caused by climate change.  It can be further…

Drought & Famine Mitigation in Arid Regions

AirSolarWater.com  Jan 2006 –  All Rights Reserved Around the world there is a lot of desert land that could be viable for agriculture but where there is inadequate water available to support the plant growth. We explore in this paper if it would be cost effective to reclaim some of this land using the Air…
