Transcript of Nile River Presentation

Precipitation gragh

Precipitation

A clear zonation pattern is visible where the lower reaches receive very low or no rainfall. This is consistent with the desert conditions through which the Nile flows. From the confluence with Atbara River (Sudan) Northwards river flow diminishes because of the high evaporation in the arid region through which it flows. In contrast the highlands of the upper reaches of the river receive much higher rainfall amounts. The rainfall input from the upper reaches of the Nile are the main source maintaining flow in the Nile. - See more at: http://www.waterandclimatechange.eu/rainfall/nile-river-basin-rainfall-in-average-year#sthash.6EePGSTe.dpuf


Does in Nile river have oxbow lakes? where?

Yes there is in Sudan

Does Nile river have dams? where?

Dams and reservoirs
In 1843 it was decided to build a series of diversion dams (barrages or weirs) across the Nile at the head of the delta about 12 miles downstream from Cairoo

where are there meanders o

Yes, just like all rivers the Nile has bends [meanders]. In fact it has what is probability the biggest one, known as the Nile Bend - see link below for image

Describe any flooding which happen on Nile river . what has been the impact of flooding along the Nile river.

The flooding of Nile river has been an important natural cycle in Egypt since ancient times. It is celebrated by Egyptians as an annual holiday for two weeks starting August 15,known as wafaa El-Nil. It is also celebrated in the coptic church by ceremonially throwing a martyr’s relic into the river, hence the name

Where is the Nile located(country)

The Nile River is located in the continent of Africa, and it flows through the countries of Ethiopia, Uganda, Egypt, Burundi and Sudan


Weatharing (part 2)

Is nile river polluted(part1)

A taking a gragh

What is the measurement of slope of your river

5.10plot of River Nile Elevation at source elevation at mouth

What are some measurements of the river’s length & width?
Research multiple sources

Does in Nile river have waterfalls?where?

There are beautiful waterfalls along the Nile River in Africa powerful and beautiful waterfalls.The Blue Nile originates at the south end of Lake Tana in northwestern Ethiopia. Lake Tana is the largest lake in Ethiopia and about 18 miles after leaving the lake the Blue Nile tumbles some 150 lovely feet over the Blue Nile Falls also known as Tis Issat or "smoking water" in the local Amharic language. The Blue Nile Falls or Tis Issat is spread out over as much as 1,300 feet during the rainy season when the water is allowed to flow as a hydroelectric power station has been built above the falls that sometimes diverts much of the water.

Where is the delta? What is the water body where your delta is found

A delta is a body of sediment deposited at the mouth of a river or stream where it enters an ocean or lake. Unlike other landforms affected by running water, a delta is not created primarily by water cutting into or eroding the landscape (erosion is the gradual wearing away of Earth surfaces through the action of wind and water). Water does not tear down a delta; instead, it builds up a delta.

Nile delta, where it enters the Mediterranean Sea

What is deposition and where does deposition occur along in Nile river? find evidence for this in google maps

Moving water also picks up and carries particles of soil and rock. The ability to erode is affected by the velocity, or speed, of the water. The size of the eroded particles depends on the velocity of the water. Eventually, the water deposits the materials. As water slows, larger particles are deposited. As the water slows even more, smaller particles are deposited

What is erosion and where does erosion occur?can I find evidence for this in google map?

What is weatherig (part1)

The East African Rift supplies water and sediments to the Nile and Congo Rivers, two of the largest drainage systems on Earth. This equatorial region, where hot and humid climate leads to a maximum of chemical weathering, is an excellent natural laboratory in which to study the products of denudation of continental crust at the core of the African continent.

What is the measurement of flow - volume and velocity.
Can you find a graph of this data?

What is the measurement of depth of your river

26 to 36feet. it can change during periods of flood level about 61/2feet.

Fresh water is essential to life on Earth. All land-dwelling creatures need fresh water to survive. Freshwater animals depend on clean water to survive, and The Nature Conservancy works to protect the planet's freshwater resources, and the freshwater animals that depend upon them. And thirsty animals

What are some important or unique species of animal that live in your river?

There are many animals that live in or around the fresh water of the Nile River

How has your river been important to human beings?

people can live near to nile river because the Egypt is desert they can have landfield, water . for thousands of years, water from the Nile has fed Egypt’s millions of people

Tell the audience some history about the river. How did it get its name?


The long history of civilization along the river emphasizes its importance to Egyptians. The river’s name comes from a Greek word neilos meaning “valley” A photo from outer space shows why this is a very suitable name



Nile river

Where is the source of the Nile river

having found the most distant source in Rwanda, at the beginning Akagera river of the Kagera River
