Study finds Thar desert expanding fast

Date: 21 December 2021 Tags: Climate Change
  • The mighty Thar desert in western Rajasthan is expanding fast because of migration of people, changes in the rainfall pattern, spread of sand dunes and unscientific plantation drives.
  • The degradation of land is posing a threat to the desert ecology, while the climate change has contributed to the spread of arid region.
  • The study conducted by the Central University of Rajasthan has predicted that the sandstorms from the desert will travel as far as the National Capital Region (NCR) in the years to come.
  • The sandstorms will become intense with the erosion of Aravali hills, which act as a ‘natural green wall’ between the desert and the plains.
