The Nile/Nasser : The Nile/Nasser By: Kellen Peter Where is the Nile River? Where is the Nasser? : Where is the Nile River? Where is the Nasser? Nile River : Nile River Through the entire year the Nile R. is a constant water source. This allows farming along its banks even though there are high temperatures that occur. Even so sometimes irrigation is necessary because temperatures get so high and evaporate a high amount of water. The Nile R. produces highly rich soil, but it is contributed with the annual spring floods (when the Nile R. over flows onto its banks). Because of the floods the decision was made that the Nile would be dammed, thus creating lake Nasser. The Nile : The Nile The Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile, and the Blue Nile. The Nile River is 6695km long (4184 miles), this is from the White Nile Source to Mouth. The Nile Runs through nine countries Uganda, Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Congo, Kenya, Tanzanian, Rwanda, and Burundi. They all have tributaries which flow into the Nile. White Nile/Blue Nile : White Nile/Blue Nile How The Nile Got Its Name and the Nile Crocodile. : How The Nile Got Its Name and the Nile Crocodile. The Nile R. derives its name from the Greek name Neilos which means a Valley or a River valley Nile Crocodile- is the largest crocodile in Africa. It is notoriously known as a man eater. Modern Achevements of the Nile R. : Modern Achevements of the Nile R. White Nile Expedition- Hendri Coetzee a South African national, became the first to navigate the entire length of the Nile River. The Expedition took off from Uganda on January 17, 2004 and they arrived at the Mediterranean 4 months and 2 wks later. On April 28,2004 a geologist named Pasquale Scaturro and his partner (kayaker and filmmaker) Hendri Coetzee, became the first people to navigate the Blue Nile. They left from Ethiopia and arrived in the Mediterranean. They later produced the IMAX documentary “Mystery of the Nile” Lake Nasser : Lake Nasser Lake Nasser is named after President Gamal Abdel Nasser (who initiated the Aswan High Dam project). The Nile was dammed in hopes that the spring floods would stop. The lake was created from the result of the Aswan High Dam. Because of Lake Nasser the water level of the Nile is now regulated all through the year, before there were seasonal floods . Lake Nasser : Lake Nasser Lake Nasser is located in Egypt and Sudan. It is and artificial lake apx. 565 km long and contains about 170,000 km (cubed) of water. Contemporary Devolvement In Lake Nasser : Contemporary Devolvement In Lake Nasser Sport fishing in Lake Nasser is extremely popular, Especially among tourists. Ferries rides take passengers and vehicles between Aswan (Egypt) and Khartoum (capital of Sudan) because it is prohibited to cross the Sudan-Egypt border on land.
