Abstract

This study examines data for Nile flood indicators (water level, sediment load, and discharge) covering the same time span as that of the examined shoreline positions. The AA. also report on more recent shoreline positions to study the long-term shoreline migrations of the Nile promontories during the last two centuries. An attempt is made to relate the shoreline migration trends to the available climatic factors, such as historical Nile flood records in connection with the paleoclimate changes in East Africa
