of this river delta is in north Egypt directly north (and/or. below) of Cairo at the coast of the southeast Mediterranean. It represents the Mündungsgebiet of the Nile, which put 5,588 km back from the Viktoriasee to the delta - this is relevant from its widens removed for source at the Luvironza in Burundi altogether 6,671 km.
By the Aswan dam, which holds back the suspended matters and sediments, established from 1960 to 1971 at the wet lake, not only the fertility of the fields leaves in the 5 to 20 km broad valley underneath the dam after, it is also the reason with progressive use, why the Nile delta continues to itself put forward no longer in the sea, but by the surf is cleared away.
the Nile delta forms the probably most well-known muzzle delta, because this coined/shaped also the designation delta, particularly the Nile delta the characteristic triangle form derived from the Greek letter delta (Δ) exhibits.
