Background Notwithstanding the tradition of having trees on farmland and awareness among farmers about the benefits of tree-based farming systems, acceptance . Wadi es-Sebua, or Valley of the Lions (so-called because of the sphinx-lined approach to the temple forecourts) (Arab: وادي السبوع), is the site of two New Kingdom Egyptian temples, including one speos temple constructed by the 19th dynasty Pharaoh Ramesses II, in Lower Nubia. The first temple was built by the 18th dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III and subsequently restored by Ramesses II.

Wadis are generally located in the flat or slightly rolling areas of deserts and often leads to dry lakes as well. A wadi can be recognized by its braided appearance, which is caused by a lack of constant water flow and an excess of sediment : Amber Pariona.

Tor influencing the soil water content during high precipita-tion events. Jiries et al. [5] evaluated water movement in typical soils in the Jordan Valley and found that water movement depends mainly on water content and soil type.

The fi nal resul ts of these surveys a re restricted to mapping of geomorphological soil erosion features. Wadi sediments may contain a range of material, from gravel to mud, and the sedimentary structures vary widely.

Thus, wadi sediments are the most diagnostic of all desert environments. Flash floods result from severe energy conditions and can result in a wide range of sedimentary structures, including ripples and common plane beds.

Water and soil conservation in drylands are intricately connected: to a large extent, plant and animal life determine water use efficiency. Even though water is considered the main factor limiting productivity in drylands, the potential of dryland ecosystems is mostly determined by a range of other limiting factors.
