Transcript of Danube River

The Danube River By Sofia Guevara, Daniela Mejia and Nicolas Trujillo problems
caused by the
river or to the
river the river is really big so when it rains
or a lot of water is accumulated then the water is so much, that a lot of floods are created As the speed and the current is
fast,when the flooding gets to the
crops they are often carried away
with other stuff such as pets or
animals that live there and they
drown. middle course The Danube River is the second longest river in Europe after the Volga river. The river is a great way to travel
so when a lot of ships go there
people have to be careful not to
contaminate it A lot of erosion is
produced by flood waters
and this erosion can cause
the collapse of bridges,
buildings and more. With higher velocities the
current is able to transport
bigger things including not
only bigger rocks but
during a flood it can
transport cars and houses. When there are floods they
can concentrate garbage or
toxic things that can cause
health issues. Humans which are in the
middle of the floods with
high velocity are drown The middle course of the Danube is more like a really calm and plain river, which means it has not so much current and movement and has half the speed of the
Upper Danube. They use the water fo
million people in 19 countries
Also a lot of industries use the waters of the Danube River and they are the biggest user of it. A lot of people navigate and transport things through the river and a lot of people have jobs for doing that so it is an important economic use for the Danube River and cities that have ports on it. ways in wich
people interact
with the river beavers: white pelican: white tailed eagle: This river is the only one in Europe to flow from south to west, and it is approximately 2850 km long For hundreds of years it has been an important route for trade and travel through central and southeastern Europe. It has about 26 major tributaries, which contribute to the European potable water, power production and farmland. The Upper course The Brigach river has its source in the black forest. It flows by Villingen –Schewenningen and at about 43km from its source, it joins the Breg. Brigach River The Breg, is the longest of these two streams. It begins at black forest as well, but it flows near Furtwangen and Vohrenbach. It is 100m away from the european watershed, so some of the watershed’s tributaries, contribute to the water current of this river. Breg River Both this rivers are the major tributaries of the Danube River, now that when they meet in Donaueschigen, the Danube is created. Its source It flows by 12 countries in Central Europe. The Danube River is created at the confluence of both this rivers near Donaueschingen in the Black Forest in Germany.
However, the source of the Danube is considered to be a spring in the castle of Donaueschingen. because it is runing downhill to get to Baden-Württemberg, a city in a flatter part of Germany. Baden-Württemberg Black Forest The Danube river starts in the black forest, where its current is mostly slow, and because it is just starting to form, it is still thin.

In the black forest we can find many pines, shrubs and young fir trees.

As well as: Hinterwald cattles giant earthworms
(Lumbricus) Western capercaillie. At the begining, when the river is just starting to take shape, its course is mostly dominated by waterfalls, and rapids In In this stage, the river starts getting wider and slower. It has a maximum depth of 54m, but the water flow contains a lot of water which creates a high current, that’s why this river causes so many floods and basins, which cover about 817,000 km2 of europe . The Ulm It flows by 17 other towns, and expands into another tributary called the Ulm, until it gets to Linz (upper Austria). In this stage the river gets wider and it is has a very low current, to the point where you can’t even see actual big waves. Gravel islands, and forests floodplains basically form the upper course of this river. Which provides suitable living conditions for a large number of species.
The forests floodplains are the last refuges in whole Europe for : White-Taled Eagle White Pelicans The upper part of this river is not very popullated, but it is surrounded by a very resourcefull comunity, now that they use: minerals and vitamins provided by the floodplain surroundings, to have fertile land More than 20 million people depend directly on the Danube for their drnking water, primarily using groundwater from wells. But as the river starts to flow by bigger cities, many of the animals are in dangered because of man-made changes to the river width, water depth and flow. It also starts to be polluted, thats why many migratory fish including the Danube Salmon, are endangered or close to extintion because they are being disconnected from their original hábitats are being over exploited. Vienna After Linz, the river flows until Vienna, where the river continues to be wide and quite slow, and this is where the middle curse starts. In the baundary between romania and serbia there is a big goerge and it is the only one in this river Serbia and Romania Vienna in Vienna starts the middle course it is the longest course.
it is a really calm part of the river with almost no tributaries. animals The Danube River is a very ecologically significant area because a lot of animals in danger of extinction are living in this river.

in this river there are: 2000 vascular plants, 5000 animals species including 40 mammals, about 180 breeding birds, 100 fishes and a dozen reptile the same as amphibians.

It has a lot of diverse and large habitats because it provides sustainable living conditions for a lot of different animals and plants species. It is home for strange birds like: the middle course of the river has a lot of population around it because it goes hrought different countries and it is located in a place with really good living conditions Hungary the tisa river is one of the mayor tributaries of the danube river and it is located in south part of hungary. it goes throught: novi sad, szeged and more.
it joins the danube river again near the mouth in Galai (east rumania) Serbia river sava is one of the mayor tributaries of the danube river and it starts at belgrade wich is located it serbia. Croatia The Drava river is one of the mayor tributaries of the Danube river but this one starts up in the river in Austria but before vienna but it finishes in Croatia. Lower Course River´s Mouth The Danube delta is in Romania
is the second largest river delta in Europe
after the Volga Delta, and is the best preserved on the continent.

Black sea The mouth of the Danube River is in the Black sea in Romania Danube Delta The danube river delta
The climate of the Danube Delta is continental with strong influences from the vicinity of the Black Sea and its prevalent amphibian environment. It is the driest and sunniest region (70 days with blue sky, 2500 hours of sunshine/year) of Romania. The mean annual temperature is 11°C (-1°C in January and 22°C in July),
redbeds water lilies 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands. The Danube Delta is a wildlife enthusiast’s (especially a bird watcher’s) paradise. sheat fish water plants seagulls Bibliography:
