Topography

10 Comments · Topography

Ethiopia is a country of great geographical diversity with high and rugged mountains, flat topped plateaus, deep gorges, incised river valleys and rolling plains.

Over the ages, erosion, volcanic eruptions, tectonic movements and subsidence have occurred and continued through millennia to accentuate the unevenness of the surface.
Altitudes range from the highest peak at Ras Dejen, 4620 meters above sea level, down to the depression of the Kobar Sink, about 110 meters below sea level.

Most of the country consists of high plateau and mountain ranges with precipitious edges dissected by the numerous streams which are the tributaries of the major rivers such as the Abay (Blue Nile), Tekeze, Awash, Omo, Wabe Shebele, Baro-Akobo, etc.

Since the country is located within the tropics, the physical conditions and variations in altitude have resulted in a great diversity of climate, soil and vegetation.

The Great Rift Valley separates the Western Highlands and the South Eastern Highlands, and the highlands on each side give way to vast semi-arid lowland areas in the east and west and especially in the south of the country.

    How Ethiopia can generate electric power without building their dam on the Nile?

    Ethiopia is mainly a plateau and mountains. These mountains can be prepared like a road around a mountain or in levels with drainage canals. These canals drains the rain water ate every level and channel it down to the lower level in controlled organized manner. At the drainage site from a higher level to the lower level an electric generator turbine (one or more based on the amount of water) can be placed. During the rain season plenty of rain falls over the Ethiopian mountains and plateau. This rain can be used then to operate these electric generators on the mountain side to generate electric power. A well designed system can operate hundreds of these turbines almost equal to the power of the presumed dam without the side effects of the dam. In addition the water will be drained in organized fashion that will dry more land at the valley that will allow more agriculture and more grassing land for cattle
