In Ethiopia, hills suddenly ride up within a few generations, chasms get engrossed with speed, and lakes expand or contract with briskness.

The movement of the earth that brought forth the continental block in the eastern region of African was spawned by extensive volcanic activity forming basalts of hard plateau.

As an example, the Bale Mountains in eastern Ethiopia form the largest area of land above 3, feet on the entire continent of Africa. Ethiopia is at almost the central point of the Great Rift Valley, and the Fantale Volcano, not far from the capital Addis Ababa, is the crux of the valley.

The rift abruptly forks at a right angle in central Ethiopia. At the apex of the split in the Awash valley, the earth is split into three giant land masses: the African plate, the Somali plate, and the Arabian plate. This locale, green with lush vegetation, is a veritable isolated garden of Eden. But green and idyllic as it may seem, danger lurks just below the surface. It is a country of vast geographical differentiation, with live volcanoes, snowcapped peaks, and torrid deserts.

It hosts fresh and saltwater lakes. Altitudes range from the highest peak at Ras Dashen, 14, feet above sea level, down to the depression of the Kobar Sink, feet below sea level in Afar.

Erosion, volcanic eruptions, tectonic movements, and the sudden collapses of earth formations into caverns have led to accentuation of the unevenness of the surface. Ethiopia is a land of blue skies speckled with cottony clouds touching the horizon.

It has a special charm and breathtaking panorama. As a human habitat, it is old beyond imagination. Lucy, the oldest hominid, lived 3. Ethiopia is mostly made up of high plateau and mountain ranges with steep edges, sliced up by torrents of rivers and brooks, the tributaries of major waterways such as the Abbay, Takaze, Awash, Omo, Wabi-Shebele, and Baro-Akobo. The western and the southeastern highlands are dissected by the Great Rift Valley.

As seen from all sides—the west, the east, and the south—the highlands yield their majestic heights to vast semiarid lowlands. The western highlands are vast in size and reach between and 8, feet in height. At the bridge that connects the provinces of Shoa and Gojam, the riverbed is a staggering 4, feet below the general level of the plateau. Many of the mountains here are higher than most in the Western massif. The southeastern mountains are, to a large extent, made of volcanic rocks, but where the rivers cut the terrain deep, crystalline formations predominate.

On their western rim are high mountains, including Batu 1, feet , stretching to the southeastern lowlands. The rocks are sedimentary rocks covered by recent lava culminating at Mount Musil at an altitude of 6, feet above sea level.

The outer lowlands are located west of the western highlands and to the east and south of the southeastern highlands. Major placer deposits have been discovered along riverbeds.

These placer deposits came about as a result of leaching of the rocks by saline solutions. The amount of their presence indicates the original existence of marine life-forms in sediments that were buried after the sea subsided. Geologists have determined that rocks of this nature in southern Ethiopia contain not many favorable structures for oil because they are only weakly folded. Geology 5 Blue Nile Gorge at a distance.

Then magma oozed out through the middle and began unzipping the crack in both directions, tearing open a mile long slit. An international team of scientists reported in the journal Geophysical Research Letters in that the active volcanic frontiers alongside the brinks of the tectonic marine plates will in the end break apart in large sections. The Red Sea, they elucidated, will eventually discharge into the new ocean, which is bound to connect to the entire body of water between Arabia and the Horn of Africa.

The good news for Ethiopian nationalists who lamented the loss of a coastline when Eritrea declared independence in is therefore that the country will once again become a maritime power. The bad news is that this will happen a million years from now when instead of sovereign entities, there could be only one universal nation on the entire planet!

Courtesy of Jeff Dixon, www. Ethiopian rivers have dug deep gorges that are 3, feet deep in places and interrupted by rapids, making them un-navigable.

Only the Baro on the west is navigable during the rainy season. Ethiopia has a lot of potential if it is able to harness what its rivers offer. The Abbay Blue Nile , with its great potential, is still underutilized, perhaps mainly because Egypt is almost totally dependent on Ethiopian waters and silt.

Egypt has The Blue Nile Falls. One of the islands of Lake Tana. Ethiopia also has areas of land that are below 1, feet contour line, though they are relatively small in size. Tropical temperatures are not observed in many places because of high elevation. Hot temperatures are found in isolated places of the lowland areas located at the periphery.

Altitude is therefore the key temperature controlling factor in Ethiopia. In most places, the highest temperatures occur during the high sun period between March and September.

Temperatures in different areas depend on the relative position of the shifting sun. Southern Ethiopia experiences its highest temperatures when the sun is vertically overhead; this is in autumn and spring.

Here, the highest temperatures are Temperature 9 Ethiopia, Kuch, Blue Nile river valley, elevated view. In some mountainous regions, temperature variations are determined by the direction of rain in relation to the position of slopes as well as the leeward or windward side winds. Temperatures in Ethiopia, dictated by topography and relief, are as follows: a Wurch: very cold area found in highlands above 11, feet; b Daga: cool highland areas above 8, feet; c Wayna-Daga: warm areas of land between 4, and 8, feet; d Qolla: hot areas found in regions of the country below 4, feet; and e Harur: the hottest lowlands below 1, feet mostly located in the Afar depression.

Ethiopian towns have temperatures corresponding to their altitude and latitude and their daily range is large. The annual range of temperature remains roughly the same throughout the year, regardless of time of year.

One way of classifying the Ethiopian climate is by annual and monthly means of temperature, rainfall types, and local vegetation. It also has tropical-savannah, rainforest, warm-temperate, and cool-highland temperatures. There are highland and lowland regions with elevations ranging from feet below sea level in the Dallol Depression, which is extremely hot, to 14, feet at Ras Dashen in the Simen Mountain range, where it is very cold and the elevated peaks host short seasonal snow.

The Blue Nile, which joins the White Nile in Khartoum, carries a huge amount of silt washed down from the Ethiopian highlands by torrential rains and deposits it in Egypt. Egypt, which has almost no rain, gets almost all of its fresh water supplies for agriculture, industry and domestic uses, and electric power generation from the Nile.

Ethiopia claims to have every right to develop its own natural resources. To show its resolve, Cairo gave stern warning to Ethiopia when the latter tried to utilize Israeli water engineers and surveyors in But the future is not necessarily bleak.

Fear of the consequences has created an incentive for cooperation. Egypt cannot totally monopolize the Nile. They will have to compromise to the detriment of both countries and the remaining riparian nations.

The Ethiopian climate has eight categories, though in short one can simply identify dry, rainy, and tropical. The nine are the following: 1. Hot arid climate: This is barren and has sparse vegetation. The Ethiopian relief includes a range of altitudes stretching from under sea level to nearly 4, meters above sea level, where seasonal snow is spotted. It has strong winds, low relative humidity, and meager cloud cover.

In places, it has heavy evaporation which is 20 times in excess of rainfall. The rainfall is highly unpredictable. Because of the fact that it has more evaporation than rainfall, it does not generate permanent streams. The grasses are short and bristly during the dry seasons, and are unpalatable to wild game and cattle. Thus, in those seasons, the animals graze on the tender fresh grasses that grow along water courses. Cool semiarid climate: The highlands of Tigray have steppe-type vegetation.

There is less evaporation here because of the low temperature of the region. Tropical climate I: This region experiences dry weather in winter. The mean temperature of the coldest month is above 18 degrees and the mean annual rainfall lies between and 2, mm. Such climate is found up to an elevation of 5, feet above mean sea level.

Cool highland climate: This climate is found at altitudes more than 10, feet above mean sea level, most often in small isolated mountain areas. The annual rainfall is between and 2, mm. The peasant mixed agriculture area covers about About 70 percent of the land in this region supports crops during the rainy season.

Because of the overstocked nature of grazing in the area, tree cover has almost disappeared.

Southern Shoa, parts of highland Hararge, southern Wallaga, Ilubabor, Kafa, northern Sidamo, and Gamo Gofa have more perennial crop cultivation than other parts of the country. Here, only about 25 percent of the land is under annual crop production during the summer and winter rainy seasons 14 Chapter 1 Geography Afro-Alpine and Sub-Afro-Alpine Vegetation These are in the Simen highlands of Gondar, parts of southeastern Wallo, parts of central Arsi, and northern Bale.

On the drier periphery of the high forest in the south and southwest of the country, there are more dense woodlands. Nearly 50 percent of this region has grassland. Vegetation and Land Use 15 Woodland The woodlands have alternating canopy and smaller trees than the high forest region.

In total, they comprise 2. In this area, 40 percent of the land has patches of forest and the main occupation of the people inhabiting this area is livestock grazing and engaging in rain-fed peasant mixed agriculture. Open woodland with tall grass undergrowth are found in western Ethiopian highland areas, in the west, and parts of the south and southeast. Nearly 50 percent of this region has grassland and therefore livestock breeding is very dominant.

In total, they cover 8 percent of Ethiopia. The largest sector is in the Baro-Akobo lowlands in Gambela state. Swamps and marshes are perennial and host scattered trees, grasses, and sedges. Because of this, they are key grazing areas and wildlife sanctuaries.

Seasonal swamps and marshes also exist and are used for livestock during the dry season. The entire built-up land is estimated at about square miles, which accounts for 0. In general, the mountainous areas experience heavy rainfall whereas in the lowlands, it is light. Southwestern Ethiopia always has heavy rainfall. It is the wettest region and experiences a mere two to four dry months per year.

The mean annual rainfall of this region is about 1, millimeters mm.

In some localities, however, it is even higher. In the east and northeast, mean annual rainfall decreases. Central and north central Ethiopia have a moderate rainfall of about 1, mm. But in some localities such as western Agaw Midir, southeastern Metekel, and the north central parts of Kola and Daga Damot in Gojam, it passes 2, mm. Also, in central Wagara and central Simen Awrajas, in north Gondar, mean annual rainfall passes the 1, mm mark. Southeastern Ethiopia experiences a mean annual rainfall of about mm.

In general, there is Keremt—long heavy summer rain—and there is Belg, which is the little rainy season. The latter is the short moderate rain falling in spring, autumn, and winter. Rainfall 17 Ethiopia Rainfall. Almost all parts of Ethiopia get rain from the southwest equatorial westerlies and southerly winds from the Indian Ocean. As such, they have heavy moisture on arrival in highland Ethiopia, causing very intense downpours in lIubabor, Kafa, Gamo Gofa—all of which are located in southwestern Ethiopia.

Rainfall decreases in the northeast. Forty percent of the rain in southwestern Ethiopia falls during the period of sowing and reaping—locally referred to as Mahar. Unlike in the southwest where rains are heavy and fall for eight or more months a year, the Tigray state has two to three months of very short rains.

The southerly winds traversing the Indian Ocean lose their moisture as they pass over the East African highlands. Consequently, a rain shadow is cast over the eastern escarpments of the northwestern plateau and nearby lowlands, thus making rain there very scanty. These winds start in north African and west Asian high pressure centers.
