Transcript of Egypt - 5 Themes of Geography (Project)

Introducing Egypt
When you think of Egypt, do you think of a vast open desert, filled with nothing? On the contrary though, Egypt is more than just a sea of sand, and we are here to show that to you.

Region
Egypt is divided into 4 regions -
Middle Egypt
Lower Egypt
Upper Egypt
Lower Nubia
Human Environment Interaction
The Egyptians also affect their environment in many ways, many of them do not have a good effect. E.g:
Agricultural land is being lost to urbanization and windblown sands
Oil pollution threatens coral reefs, beaches, and marine habitats
Other water pollution from agricultural pesticides, raw sewage, and industrial effluents
Limited natural freshwater resources away from the Nile, which is the only perennial water source
Rapid growth in population over straining the Nile and natural resources
All these events cause bad fortune for the Egyptians

Upper Egypt
Middle Egypt
Lower Egypt
Lower Nubia
Middle Egypt today can be identified as the part of the Nile Valley that, while geographically part of Upper Egypt, is culturally closer to Lower Egypt.

Lower Egypt, is the northernmost region of Egypt: the fertile Nile Delta, between Upper Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea — from El-Aiyat, south of modern-day Cairo, and Zawyet Dahshur.
Upper Egypt, is the strip of land, on both sides of the Nile valley, that extends between Nubia, and downriver (northwards) to Lower Egypt.
Lower Nubia is the northern portion of Nubia, downstream on the Nile from Upper Nubia. It lies between the First and Second Cataracts, roughly from Aswan in the north to Wadi Halfa in the south. Its history is also known from its long relations with Egypt.
