Desertification dynamics of arid ecosystems in Inner Asia

V.S. Khrutskii and E.I. Golubeva

** egolubeva@gmail.com

Presented are the results from a geoecological monitoring of natural-anthropogenic changes in the situation in the desert-steppe region of Inner Asia (Great lakes Depression), based on space-acquired images at intervals of 27–30 years, published data, and the authors’ ground-based observations. The changes identified in this study are associated with global hydrothermal processes, and with the influence of anthropogenic loads.

Keywords: Western Mongolia, space-acquired images, climate aridization, aridization of arid ecosystems.
