Abstract

Nakchivan autonomic republic is a blockaded autonomous region that is dependent on Azerbaijan between Persia and Turkey. The most important relief of this region is consisted of middle Aras river basin. At the same time some part of the land in this region belongs to Turkey. In this area the blockade condition, dry climate effects of humans and etc. situations spoiled the ecological balance and it increased the desertification process. As a result the middle Aras river basin is turned to desertificated regions (lands). In this article measures that can be applied in this region are presented to stop this danger.
