  A vast river network that once carried water for hundreds of miles across Western Sahara has been discovered under the parched sands of Mauritania.. . The Egyptian Nile, the northernmost segment of the Nile River, is particularly important to answering some of these questions because it contains a record of over 20 Ma of geologic history.

Earth sciences - Earth sciences - The origin of the Nile: Of all the rivers known to the ancients, the Nile was most puzzling with regard to its sources of water. Not only does this river maintain its course up the length of Egypt through a virtually rainless desert, but it rises regularly in flood once each year. Speculations on the strange behaviour of the Nile were many, varied, and mostly. The Nile: Evolution, Quaternary River Environments and Material Fluxes.

  In addition, the authors investigate a site in the eastern Nile delta, where the ancient Pelusiac branch of the Nile once flowed into a coastal lagoon then known as the Lake of Tanis. We conduct a satellite and modeling survey to analyze this location, using geological evidence of the ancient bathymetry and a historical description of a strong.   When the Mediterranean Sea was gradually drying up the Nile River—usually given another name in the geological literature like the Eonile or Paleonile—would have begun to erode down into the rock below. As erosion continued, it would cause the newly formed canyon to continue to form further back from the mouth of the Nile River.

book ed. by Felix P. Bentz (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store. Everyday low. Geology of the Nile River catchment and hinterland. The geology of the modern Nile catchment has largely been shaped by the events of the Pan-African Orogeny (Kröner and Stern, ), when east and west Gondwana collided to form ‘Greater Gondwana’ at the end of the Neoproterozoic.

In North Africa, this orogeny involved the collision. Under this title R. Said, of the Geological Survey of Egypt, has summed up what is known at present about the development of the Nile system in Egypt (in press, ). Previously, in his Geology of Egypt () he has brought together the results of both the work by others and his by: This multidisciplinary book by the author of The Geology of Egypt is the result of many years of research.

Rushdi Said (Arabic: رشدي سعيد ‎) ( – February 8, ) was an Egyptian scientist. He was educated at Cairo, Zurich, and Harvard Universities. A professor of geology, he was the chairman of the board of the Egyptian Mining and Geological Research Organization (–).He played a major role in the development of this organization with the new mining discoveries.

What have we learnt about the Nile since the mids, the moment when Julian Rzóska decided that the time had come to publish a comprehensive volume about the biology, and the geological and cultural history of that great river?

And what changes have meanwhile occurred in the basin? The human popu- tion has more than doubled, especially in Egypt, but also in East Africa.5/5(1).Courtesy of NASA. INTRODUCTION This book is an attempt to bring together information on the biology of the Nile.
