Description :
This paper confronts the question of how the natural processes on and around an alluvial fan are altered by urbanization. Further, the AA. try to point out how some geomorphic principles applied to the urban alluvial fan situation might help provide better engineering solutions to prospective and resulting problems. Several aspects of the considerations involved are illustrated by examples from the town Eilat, Southern Negev Desert, Israel, a dynamically developing international tourist resort.
