Temperature scales are based on melting ice and boiling water under standard atmospheric pressure. Four temperature scales are in general use today: Fahrenheit (°F), Rankine (°R), Celsius (°C), and Kelvin or Absolute (K). 16 K. In the United States, the Fahrenheit scale is commonly used, with the Rankine scale used mainly by engineers. The Celsius and Kelvin scales are used internationally for scientific measurements. 5 Medium of Transport Nutrients, sediments, seeds, pollen, bacteria, viruses, pathogenic agents, parasitic organisms, insect eggs, pollutants, and many other materials are transported by water.

5° N and covers about one-tenth of the African continent. 4 lists the 10 countries sharing the Nile River basin, areas of contribution to the basin, and the hydrologic data. Although the Nile (6484 km) is the second longest river in the world, its annual discharge is only a small proportion of that of other major rivers, for example, 3% of the Amazon, 14% of the Mississippi, and 43% of the Danube (Said, 1981). The low volume of waters shared by 10 countries makes allocation of the waters of the Nile River crucial to downstream areas.
