  Abstract. Egypt consists of four main geological areas, Nile River valley and its delta, Western Desert, Eastern Desert, and Sinai Peninsula. The Nile Valley broadens gradually toward the north of Egypt and it is bounded by several sedimentary basins and desert sands that have been settled upon fluvial soils. The geology of the Sinai Peninsula ranges from Precambrian basement rocks to Quaternary deposits.
