The Nile is the longest river in the world which is located in Africa. It spans itself from Lake Victoria in east central Africa to Egypt. It flows generally north through Uganda, Sudan, and Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea, for an approximate distance of 5,584 km From its remotest headstream, the Luvironza River in Burundi, the river is 6,695 km long. The river basin has an area of about 3,350,000 sq km. Its average discharge is 3.1 million litres per second.
Central Africa's Lake Victoria has a huge impact on the region in which its located. The countries surrounding the lake depend on it for commerce, food, and clean drinking water. This paper will discuss the biological issues facing Lake Victoria. These issues include what role evolution has played on the Cichlidae family of fish, what factors are contributing to the declining health of the lake, how those factors are affecting the inhabitants of the lake, and what steps are being taken to ensure that pollution and overgrowth are kept to a minimum. Lake Victoria rests between the countries of Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
The Red Sea proper is bordered by six countries: the Western shore border is Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, and Djibouti. On the Eastern shore is Saudi Arabia and Yemen. (Kalmar n.p., “Red Sea” 101) Data of Red Sea currents is lacking today because the currents are too weak and vary too much to be recorded, both spatially and temporally. In addition to other winds, monsoonal and mountain gap winds influence its currents. For four months out of the year, Northwest winds send surface water south at 7 inches per second.
The Nile, is the longest river in the world, and is located in northeastern Africa. Its principal source is Lake Victoria, in east central Africa. The Nile flows north through Uganda, Sudan, and Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea, with a total distance of 5584 km. From its remotest headstream in Burundi, the river is 6671 km long. The river basin covers an area of more than 3,349,000 sq km.
They would help the ecosystem of the lake and make the dam friendlier to the people and the environment. Another problem on the Mekong is the pollution that is happening. One solution that could be done is to not allow the use of pesticides on the rice fields along the river. These pesticides and fertilizers on the rice fields run off into the river during rain, monsoons or flooding of the river. Without the use of these chemicals then the river will be much less polluted and safer for the animals.
The Nile Valley does something that normally a river would not do which is flow from south to north. There are 2 sources that the Nile Valley has that make up the entire river. The 2 sources are the Blue Nile and the White Nile. The White Nile is the longest of the 2 niles making it over 2,000 just by itself and it begins near the border of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zaire. The shorter nile which is the Blue Nile starts in the highland part of Ethiopia, which is over 5,000 feet above sea level.
The first civilizations to appear in history started on a river valley or in a place where resources are numerous and example of these are in India where Indus river is found and Tigris where Euphrates is found and many other places (cradles of civilization). The Nile is the longest river in the world, cuts a swath of green and life through the bareness of the giant Sahara desert in northern Africa. It is almost 4160 miles long from its remotest head stream, the Lavironza river in Burundi, in central Africa to its delta on the Mediterranean sea north east of Egypt. The river flows northward and drain 1100100 square miles, about tenth the size of Africa, passing through ten African countries. It has many tributaries but there are two main ones: the White Nile fed by lake Victoria and the Blue Nile coming from Ethiopian mountains.
This is when water shortage and irrigation are not only an ecological problem but also an economic problem. Since most of our freshwater is used for irrigation, we are left with 2 options: find an alternative irrigation system or continue to waste water. Restructuring our irrigation system will solve a large portion of our freshwater shortage problem. In 1998, seawater irrigation came into the picture. “Seawater irrigation is defined as growing salt-tolerant crops on land using water pumped from ocean for irrigation” (Gleen, Brown, and O’Leary 77).
Nile River is the longest river in the world. It flows 6,650 kilometers through nine countries, which are Egypt, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zaire. The White Nile from equatorial Africa and the Blue Nile from the Abyssinian highlands are two major sources of the river. The river name ‘Nile’ is come from Greek Neilos, which come from the word “river valley”. The word ‘Nile’, in ancient Egyptian language, has meaning ‘great river’ (2009).
Receiving little rain, most of the water in the country’s streams and rivers is seasonal. From the Hula Valley to the Dead Sea runs the Jordan, Israel’s largest river, this attracts many tourists. The largest body of fresh water is the Kinneret, and the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. Both of which are popular sites for tourism. Agriculture plays an important role in Israeli culture and history.
