Terrain: Yemen has a variety of surface features and has been divided into five major geographic regions:
Coastal coastal plain: It runs sporadically along the coast of Yemen, where the mountains and plateaus directly reach the sea in more than one place. Therefore, the coastal plain of Yemen includes the following plains: (Tihama plain – Tabn – Abyan plain – East coast and located within the province of Al-Mahra).
The coastal plain is characterized by a hot climate throughout the year, with a few rains of between 50-100 mm per year, but it is considered an important agricultural region, especially the Tihama plain, due to the large number of wadis that penetrate this region and precipitates precipitation caused by rainfall on the mountain heights.
The region of the mountainous highlands: This region extends from the maximum borders of Yemen to the north and to the far south. This region has been exposed to tectonic movements resulting in major and secondary fractures, some of which are parallel to the Red Sea and others parallel to the Gulf of Aden, resulting in precipitous plateaus that included mountain bodies.
