Imaggeo On Monday: Drought – a prerequisite for hazardous flash floods

The drying out of the soil leads to the hazard of flash floods in the wadis of the Dead Sea Valley during sparse but strong rain events. During longer precipitation-free periods and extreme low relative humidity, driven by mesoscale wind, the soil crust ultimately tends to break into piece.
