This study develops an integrated methodology to evaluate and prioritize suitable sites for many human activities associated with sustainable marine development, such as wind farms, fish farms, and marine nature reserves. The methodological framework includes identifying proposed locations for ship trajectory, laying oil pipelines, oil platforms, a...
Coastal zones are witnessing excessive abstraction of groundwater due to the exacerbated water demand, and this impacted groundwater depth in the major coastal aquifers. Groundwater Artificial Recharge (GWAR) is often presented as an adaptive solution to protect coastal aquifers. However, sites positioning for GWAR is still a matter of debate, nota...
Forest fires are one of the severe natural hazards that rea frequently occur in the Mediterranean Region, as a result of the increased temperature resulting from global warming. The damage in the forest area has been exacerbated lately, making it necessary to adopt systematic tools based on scientific techniques. This can be performed by producing...
Lebanon is known for its natural components, notably its natural resources. However, these resources have recently witnessed exhaustion due to the lack of proper management approaches to protect these resources. In the last few years, several aspects of land degradation in Wadi El Hjeir have been well-pronounced, and this has been associated with n...
The energy demand is gradually increasing due to the rapid population growth, and, the moving World towards the exploitation of renewable energy sources. This study was carried out in Lebanon, and certainly in the Nabatieh District where fossil fuel is highly used and resulted in CO2 release, as the main factor in climate change and the related env...
Farhat, Nasser. 2018. Effect of relative humidity on evaporation rates in Nabatieh region. Lebanese Science Journal, 19(1): 59-66. Relative humidity affects evaporation, which is in turn is affected by several climatic parameters. This effect is on the increase as a result of climate changes, especially increased temperature. Nabatiyeh region, in s...
