The Review of Saline Water in Desert Management

Maryam Naeimi and Gholam Reza Zehtabian

Abstract—Considering the population growth rate in the world currently has about 2 percent which is estimated every 35 years to the present, in terms of water needed was double increased. Thus, appropriate management is necessary in order to exploit and optimize the usage of saline water resources. The purpose of this paper is to review recent research on saline water, causes and different usage of saline water. Holes in deserts are locating in the interior part of catchments. They are a gathering closed place for surface water and groundwater elevations, which due to intense evaporation the amount of grown minerals and salt are increased. Depending on the location of the study area the usage of saline water will be different. The findings of this paper suggest that in general direct usage of saline water for agriculture, strengthening rang, forest and fish culture has already created, and while another way which is sweetening the saline water could be applied by consideration of benefits and costs of it.

Index Terms—Desert, salinity, management, water.
