Abstract

The Gulf of Aqaba is situated between the Sinai (Et Tih) Desert and the western Arabian (An Nefud) Desert (Fig. D. l). Although at a distance of only about 200 km south of the humid, Mediterranean-influenced region of Israel, the northern tip of the Gulf is already well within the extreme arid zone (Fig. D. 2).
