A doctoral thesis was discussed in the College of Education for Girls, tagged (geomorphological processes affecting the formation of the surface shapes of the earth in the Western Plateau region within the Al-Najaf Governorate).
This study was presented by the researcher Lina Zuhair Abdel Zahra and supervised by Prof. Nasreen Awad Al-Jassani is of importance as it is a study that searches in the field of applied geomorphology, which is one of the branches of natural geography, and thus represents an applied geomorphological study of the western plateau region within the province of Najaf, as the ground shapes vary according to the prevailing geomorphological processes in the region and which make up these shapes. Geomorphological processes are among the important studies that have contributed to the formulation and formation of the land, such as erosion, erosion and weathering, in order to benefit from them in research and exploration for mineral and natural resources and to address multiple dangers. On the one hand the availability of ground and surface water, as well as the presence of a number of valleys that represent seasonal rivers with large partial energies and the presence of depressions in the form of floods of water which can be used for agriculture, grazing and population settlement, and the presence of many of these geomorphological phenomena and depressions in the region of the plateau that can be This region has turned into a tourist attraction.
The importance of studying this region lies in the lack of pollution in it, as it can be used as natural reserves for breeding, in addition to the abundance of natural plants suitable for animal fodder, which encourages raising animals in large numbers on these natural pastures of the Bedouin population, which can invest these animals and develop their production by working to train them, rehabilitate the population and provide Veterinary services for them. This research can also provide an information base on the western plateau region within the province of Najaf for scholars, researchers and decision-makers.
