Transcript of THE NILE RIVER

By: Paulo Oliveira Reis
A little bit about the Nile.
The word Nile means: Great River, in egyptian.
Why is Egypt the gift of the Nile?
Egypt is the gift of the Nile because, where Egypt is situated is a dry place, the nile is a source of life to Egypt.
What feeds the Nile?
The Nile is fead by the mediterranean sea.
How long is the Nile? And what countries does it passes through?
The Nile is 6,650 km long, and passes through many countries like: Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt.
There are over a 100 species of fish in the Nile River. Here are some of them: on the right, a fisherman caught a Giant Nile Perch. The Nile Perch can reach 2 meters long (6 feet) and 200 kilos (440 pounds). Normally however a mature adult is about 121-137 cm (48-54 inches). there is other type of fish such as: the Tiger fish, the common Nile Tilapia and the Lung fish.
What kind of fish is there in the Nile?
Does the Nile ever flood?
The Nile floods rarely, because of no rainfall. It only may happen in´ the rainy seasons once a year or less.
What does the civilization do to the Nile?
The civilization around the Nile w´ont exist without the help of the river, because all of these bridges, dams, buildings, boats, are made from the human itself and machines that needed to constuct a new Egypt.
What are the fresh water resources?
The Nile fresh water recources are: Hydrolic power, farming, and fishing.
Why does the water of the nile not spread on a larger surface of area?
The Nile cannot spread, because of dams beig built in it, and there is no such rainfall that it would have to take a year or more to flood.
Flaura and fauna of the river nile.
Are the any dredging around the nile?
Yes, there is dreging around the Nile, because there is getting less and less water because more people come for water to drinl and other utilities because of the dams.
What are the tributaries of the Nile?
The Nile river has two main tributaries: The White Nile and Blue Nile. 80% percent of the water in egypt comes from the Blue Nile and its Ethipian highland source. The White Nile rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source in central Burundi. Its tributaries and lakes connect 10 countries to what is known as the Nile River Basin. They are: Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan and Egypt.
What is the nile bassin?
The Nile Basin covers an area of around 3 million km2, or nearly 10% of the landmass of the African continent, and is home to 160 million people. Water experts believe there is not enough water in the river to meet the various irrigation goals of the Nile basin nations. Adding to potential water stress, many large hydropower dams are being built or considered, including Merowe and Kajbar dams in Sudan; Tekeze, Grand Renaissance , Baro 1, Baro 2, Karadobi, and Tana Beles dams in Ethiopia; and Bujagali and Karuma dams in Uganda.All of these competing projects combined with the coming impacts of climate change could send the region’s already over–tapped water resources into crisis, leave economies weaker rather than stronger, and do little to reduce ongoing conflict over the Nile.
How deep is the Nile? And how long is it?
The Nile river, wich is 4,145 miles, and 6,000 feet deep.
Is there any monuments around the nile and how much are they?
There is about ten monuments around the nile, they are: Pyramids of Giza, Karnak, Abu Simbel, Valley of the Kings, Red pyramid, Great Sphinx, Luxor temple, Step Pyramid of Djoser, Bent Pyramid, and Temple of Hatshepsut.

Are they dams on the river Nile?
There is about 5 dams on the river Nile, One of them is the biggest it is the ASWAN DAM, built by: Gamal Abdel Nasser, he built the aswan dam because he wanted to stop water scarcity in egypt when the dry seasons come.Constructed in 1889, insufficiently held the water, and was raised in 1912, and again in 1933. When the dam threatened to overflow for a third time in 1946, it was decided that a second dam was to be built a few miles upstream. For the first time in history, man has the ability to control the annual Nile River Flood. During the rainy season, the water is captured by the dam, stored until times of drought, and then released as needed.
Will the Nile ever dry up?
There is a famous prophecy that the River Euphrates will be dried up to make way for the Kings of the East. Historically, the Euphrates is the border between the Middle East and Asia. Biblically, God told Abraham He would give to His people all the land between the Euphrates and the Nile.The Euphrates is also the place where four demon angels are bound for a day and an hour to perform a certain judgment of God - which is to kill a third of mankind. . The Euphrates was one of the original rivers coming out of the Garden of Eden. Or Man could alter its course via use of a dam or lock system. So maybe the Nile may dry up, but with reasons.
Thanks for watching!!!!!
There is problems about the water, and who it belongs to, some countries that were the nile passes through agrred on a treety of water mark and to know who it belongs to, but egypt d int agree.
Is there any contrevancy about the river Nile?
The Flaura and Fauna of the river Nile, Here is the Flaura:is made of Palm trees, coconut trees, banana trees, date trees and other species of plants. The Fauna: crocodiles, alligators, snakes, scorpions, The Nile Eagle, The Nile Perch and other species.
Why does the Nile change its course as it flows through Afica?
Well no one knows, I think that the egyptians god chose it.
