Description :
The paleoclimatological and geological evolution of the northern Negev desert in the late Pleistocene is analysed on the basis of data obtained on present-day geomorphic processes in arid rocky and sandy areas. The study is relevant to the problem of the impact of climatic change in semi-arid and arid areas. The study focuses on the case of a change from drier to wetter conditions, a transition which was accompanied by loess penetration into the northern Negev desert.
