Yair Mau : Reversing desertification: a pattern formation approach

The problem of reforestation is studied by solving a vegetation model in drylands. The "shikim" water harvesting method is seen as a parametric periodic forcing of a pattern forming system, where the resulting stripes and spots patterns are 1:1 and 2:1 resonant solutions. A modified Swift-Hohenberg equation helps us understand the dynamics of collapse and expansion of patterned states. I conclude by addressing preventive measures that make the vegetation system more resilient to climatic changes, and help avoid catastrophic regime shifts.
