The Gulf War and the Environment Hardback
Edited by Farouk El-Baz, R. M. Makharita
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: War and Security in the Middle East series
The Gulf War inflicted dramatic environmental damage upon the fragile desert and shore environments of Kuwait and north eastern Saudi Arabia.
Marine environments experienced oil spills; inland, oil lakes and burning oil wells caused widespread pollution.
This book, first published in 1994, presents an in-depth analysis of these environmental disasters, their long-term consequences, and potential ways to repair the damage.
