Summary
Abstract: The concept of drylands continues to be debated. In this data set, drylands are taken as areas with a potential hazard of desertification. The hyperarid zone is not subject to desertification and is therefore excluded. Hence drylands are defined as the arid, semi-arid and dry subhumid zones, or areas with lengths of growing periods of 1-179 days.
