Al `Arish
Al `Arish
Al `Arish
(Arabic: العريش‎) is an abandoned village in Qatar, located in the municipality of Ash Shamal.[1] It is one mile south-west of the coastal village of Al Khuwayr.[2] Etymology[edit] Arish, an Arabic term, refers to palm trees; it was named so after palm trees growing in the area which shaded the entire village.[3] Geography[edit] To the south-west is Sabkhat Al-Arish. A sabkha, its elevation is close to sea level. Due to the high level of salinity, only a small number of trees grow there.[3] References[edit]^ Peter Spencer.

Geographic Coordinate System
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[note 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation.[1] To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.[2]Contents1 History 2 Geodetic datum 3 Horizontal coordinates3.1 Latitude

Arecaceae
The Arecaceae
Arecaceae
are a botanical family of perennial climbers, shrubs, acaules and trees commonly known as palm trees (owing to historical usage, the family is alternatively called Palmae).[3] They are flowering plants, a family in the monocot order Arecales. Currently 181 genera with around 2600 species are known,[4] most of them restricted to tropical and subtropical climates. Most palms are distinguished by their large, compound, evergreen leaves, known as fronds, arranged at the top of an unbranched stem. However, palms exhibit an enormous diversity in physical characteristics and inhabit nearly every type of habitat within their range, from rainforests to deserts. Palms are among the best known and most extensively cultivated plant families. They have been important to humans throughout much of history

Ash Shamal
in the north. There are plans to redevelop ruins of the ancient village as a tourist attraction.[2] Umm Tais National Park and Ar Ru'ays
Ar Ru'ays
are nearby.[3] Etymology[edit] Al Mafjar
Al Mafjar
roughly translates to 'bomber'. There is a high ground to the north of the village which has long prevented seawater from washing in, but when sea levels rose unexpectedly, the seawater "exploded" and spread around the village, thus giving it the name 'Al Mafjar'.[4] See also[edit]Natural areas of QatarReferences[edit]^ Collectif, Petit Futé, Dominique Auzias, Jean-Paul Labourdette (2014).
