Prefabricated Weighing Lysimeter for Remote Research Stations
After designing and constructing several precision scale system weighing lysimeters in Southern Europe and the Middle East, the need arose for a prefabricated 'turn-key'...

Flexible Irrigation Supply Pilot Projects—Part II: Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Egypt
The Sri Lanka project covers about 150 one hectare farms on the lower half of a unit served by one distributary. The upper part, because of delays in construction, was left as an earth...

Description and Evaluation of Program: SNUSM
The Staggered Net Unsteady State Model (SNUSM) was developed in the early 1980's by the United States Bureau of Reclamation under the direction of Bob Gooch and Al Graves....

Groundwater Management in the Main Aquifer of High Aswaan Dam
The High Aswaan Dam reservoir replenishes a groundwater aquifer which extends on both sides of the dam lake with variable thickness. The groundwater of this aquifer is used to irrigate...

Bed Forms of Nile River
In this paper, the observed bed forms for six different reaches of the Nile River in Egypt are described. The purpose of the study is to inquire whether or not the different available...

Sediment Transport Measurements in the Nile River at Bani Mazar
Measurements of sediment transport on the Nile River were conducted at Bani Mazar (200 km South of Cairo) during high and low water stages. Bed-load and suspended-load transport rates...

Movable-Bed Model to Evaluate Nile River Dredging
About 200 km south of Cario, at Bani Mazar reach, the Nile River has widened and formed several islands. The result is three channels with shallow depths. One of the branches must be improved...

Effect of Manning's Roughness Coefficient in Simulating Flow Parameters in Natural Channels
Manning's roughness coefficients are presented for three of the oldest and largest irrigation canals in Egypt. The discharges ranges from 35 to 318 m3/s....

Cofferdam Rip-Rap Protection for the New Esna Barrage
A 1:60 undistorted mobile bed model of the Nile River in the vicinity of Esna Barrage was constructed at the Hydraulics and Sediment Research Institute to test rip-rap protection of the...

Determination of Vertical Leakage for Nile Valley
The determination of vertical groundwater leakage is particularly important for irrigated agriculture where adequate drainage is required to prevent high water tables and related problems...

The Great American Pyramid
For more than 50 years officials of Memphis, Tenn. have wanted to establish a link to their Egyptian namesake--and they will, through a pyramid. As opposed to its Egyptian forerunners,...

Environmental Aspects of Water Resources Development
Long-term management of resources requires a comprehensive anlysis of the effects that development and management of one resource may be expected to exert upon other resources. However,...

Annual Flow Variations in the Nile River System
The annual flow series of the Nile River System at some key gauging stations for the period 1912-1988 are presented and discussed. The relatively stable period, pre-1961, has helped establish...

Watershed Modeling of The Western Coast Wadis of Egypt
The main goal of this paper is to present the water resources assessment from both surface and ground-water resvoirs of the western coast watersheds in Egypt. Two submodels were used for...

Drought Risk Analysis Based on Hydrologic Records of the River Nile
The characteristics of the parameters of hydrologic droughts are studied by analysing and modeling the maximum and 'minimum' stage-level series of the River Nile...

Modelling of Stages of Nile River as a Tool for a Better Water Resources Management
As far as Egypt is concerned, the Nile is not just a river, it is rather the pulsing nerve of life. Consequently, it was essential to maintain detailed information about its levels and...

Overview of Mathematical Models—River Nile/High Aswan Dam
This paper has been directed towards the presentation of seven reliable planning tools (mathematical models) that can be used for the investigation of the planning options facing policy...

Recent Developments in the Oil Spill Response, Arrangements in Four Mediterranean Countries: The Cases of Spain, Italy, Libya and Egypt

Mathematical Modeling of Water Balance in a Well Defined Pilot Area
This study developed a water balancing computer code, a type of book keeping method using a detailed version of the hydrologic balance equation. The purpose was to provide a method of...

Reservoir Sedimentation Mathematical Modeling
The main objective for this paper is to show how one can predict the sediment movement, and estimate the volume of the deposited sediments, which is considered as one of the factor affecting...
