This stretch of the Nile traverses the Sahara desert, where it receives no input from rain or tributaries.
Lesson 4: The Nile River - An Overview
The major S-shaped bend in the Nile occurs here as well, as the river has carved deep trenches through hard sandstone bedrock in the stretches between the cataracts. The cataracts themselves are not waterfalls but rather long stretches of fairly steep rocky terrain e.
The cataracts reflect the gradual erosion of the Nubian sandstone—a fairly soft and horizontal rock unit that underlies the flat, broad portion of the Nile—and the resulting exposure of the underlying granitic rocks, which are much harder and tend to erode in narrow channels. The cataracts in southern Egypt.
LESSON 4 OUTLINE
In this area, the Nile broadens to a width of up to 16 km and flows through a channel it has cut in its own silty deposits. These sediments were laid down annually during flooding—triggered, of course, by the local arrival of influx from the Ethiopian highlands—until the completion of the first Aswan dam around The Nile in Cairo.
These form part of the great Nile delta, which is composed of fine silt from the basalts of the Ethiopian highlands.
