|Geology of Critical Zone Class at CJ Brown Reservoir|
In class we discussed the Aswan Dam in Egypt that created jobs and made it possible to regulate the Nile for farmlands near the dam. Drawbacks included interrupting the age-old cycle of fertility from natural flooding, the salinization of upstream farmland through irrigation from the reservoir, Lake Nassar, and the loss of land and artifacts where the lake was created, and the sinking of the delta from loss of new sediment.

|Stage Height is measured at the outflow to calculate total volume of water released.|
