BEADNELL (1901) and SANDFORD (1934) advocated that the Nile valley is of erosional origin. , 1993) consider it of tectonic origin. The tectonic origin of the Nile valley is supported by the fault scarps bordering the cliffs of the Nile valley, by the numerous faults recognized on its sides (EL-GAMILI, 1982; SAID 1981, 1990) and by the focal mechanisms of the most recent earthquakes (NRIAG, 2001). Moreover, recent studies indicate that the Nile valley of Egypt occupied the marginal part of two tectonic zones (the Eastern Desert and the inner part of the Neogene-Quaternary platform), and it is considered as a barrier that prevented the extension of the activity of the East African orgenic belt to the west (SAID, 1990).
