Egypt – April 28th, 2013

The thumbnail image shows Lake Nasser, a reservoir on the Nile River on the border of Sudan (below) and Egypt (above). In the full image, the upper course of the Nile to its delta on the Mediterranean can be observed.

Scientists studying the effects of climate change on the Nile River estimate that the expected change in precipitation over the Blue Nile until 2030 will range from –2.15% to 10.65%, while that over the White Nile basin will range from –0.61% to 8%. Over the whole Nile, the range of temperature changes varies from 0.21 to 0.82 degrees at the highest, while the precipitation changes range from –1.43% to 9.94% at the highest (click here for more information).
