Program: Master in Physical Geography
1- What specialty in geography do you wish to pursue, and why?
In point of fact, I really enjoy knowing Physical Geography particularly in hydrology, geomorphology, and remote sensing. I will also have better understanding and application of Physical Geography concepts such as knowing how Saudi Arabia`s environment was during wet periods (quaternary study). The degree will bequest me a chance to find out with professor Ronald, who is the expert in geomorphology desert, how can we use rock varnish to investigate and study ancient wet periods in Saudi Arabia by using the technique FIB with electron microscopes which ASU has. The course will help me to gain knowledge and skills to understand and address issues of Desert and its causes. Moreover, the study of the usage of remote sensing would be of great help in my teaching programs since the study would help me explore deserts in better ways.

Every place in Earth has advantages but it varies from place to another. As a matter of fact, there are many differences between Saudi Arabia and United States of America. For instance, the location for each country has different features. However, Saudi Arabia has large deserts same like the Western region of the United States. In fact, The Arabian Peninsula has huge desert areas, which mostly are located in Saudi Arabia. Actually, ASU is located in the western area, which gives ASU an advantage over other universities. This is an advantage for me because its infrastructure is quietly similar to my country. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia does not have any records to track the noticeable desertification at various location. Saudi Arabia is very rich of natural resources, which makes it really worthy and suitable location to conduct several researches. For instance, oil, gas, and gold are examples for these natural resources located in Saudi Arabia. Establishing detailed geological studies will facilitate benefiting humanity appropriately without affecting the existing ecological balance.
