Wadi Al Dawasir, Saudi Arabia
2000 Wadi Al Dawasir
2017 Wadi Al Dawasir
The Wajid Aquifer in Saudi Arabia underlies about 450,000 square kilometers in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The area around Wadi Al Dawasir, Saudi Arabia, relies on the aquifer to provide water for the extensive development of agriculture. As a result the water level in the aquifer system has dropped 6m/yr for the past 20 to 30 years. Heavy use of water has led to the exhaustion of the aquifer in some areas (Inventory of Shared Water Resources in Western Asia. DOI: https://dx.doi.org/10.18356/d8517580-en). The images were acquired June 30, 2000, and April 26, 2017, cover an area of 34.6 by 43.9 kilometers, and are located at 20.1 degrees north, 44.7 degrees east.
