Land Use Policy
Arid and semi-arid regions are particularly vulnerable to global environmental change because of their fragile climatic conditions. The rapid development of land use is expected to affect aquatic ecosystems in these regions. In this study, we focused on how land use change affects the stream flow and inflow to Urmia Lake in the Mordagh Chay basin, Iran. This case-study exemplifies dynamics found across a much larger region. We mapped changes in land use between 1993-2015 using satellite imagerydoi:10.1016/j.landusepol.2019.104299 fatcat:vnb35sgmqrhg3outdrkzkarlq4
