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...

Groundwater Depletion and Salinity in Yazd, Iran
The central Iranian plateau contains part or all of five provinces and covers more than a third of the total area of Iran (Figure 3). This area has one of the most unfavorable hydrologic...

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...

Ring Gate as Turbine Emergency Shut-Down Device
The ring gate, intially used as a regulating device in the early stage of the design of hydraulic turbines, has grown to a reliable emergency shut-down device. Incorporated in the hydraulic...

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...
