 The Potential of the Nile River Basin and the Economic Development of Sudan
During the period of the great rains of 1961-64 over the equatorial lake district, the Sudd reached 29,800 square kilometers (of both permanent and seasonal river-flooded area), which is close to the size of Belgium.
The swamp is characterized by floating or jammed up ``islands,'' called sudd, of marsh vegetation, broken off from their moorings, and in various states of decomposition.
The proposals for waterworks in the Sudd, and in the upper Nile lake plateau region, are either partially built, or not built at all.

 Terrestrial Ecoregions -- Saharan flooded grasslands (AT0905)
The Sudd is one of the largest floodplains in Africa, providing watering and feeding grounds for populations of migratory mammals and birds.
The gradient of the river through the Sudd is greater than that on its subsequent course from Malakal to Khartoum (Beadle 1981).
Diversion would also cause the Sudd swamps and associated floodplains to shrink dramatically, possibly threatening the fauna and flora that depend on them for their survival.

The net benefit from the Sudd el Aali Reservoir shall be calculated on the basis of the average natural River yield of water at Aswan in the years of this century which is estimated at about 84 Milliards of cubic meters per year.
The acquired rights of the two Republics referred to in Article "First" as measured at Aswan, and the average of losses of over-year storage of the Sudd El Aali Reservoir shall be deducted from this yield, and the balance shall be the net benefit which shall be divided between the two Republics.
By adding these shares to their acquired rights, the total share from the net yield of the Nile after the full operation of the Sudd el Aali Reservoir shall be 18 1/2 Milliards for the Republic of the Sudan and 55 1/2 Milliards for the United Arab Republic.

 Terrestrial Ecoregions -- Saharan flooded grasslands (AT0905)
As one of the largest floodplains in Africa, the Sudd provides watering and feeding grounds for large populations of migratory mammals and migratory birds.
The source of the Sudd swamps is the White Nile (known also as the Bahr-el-Jebel, Albert Nile, and Victoria Nile), which rises in the headwaters of Lake Victoria.
Since 1961, inflow to the Sudd has been increasing, and so the wetland area is larger than it was in past years.

North of the Sudd the stream is called the White Nile; about 800 km (500 mi) long, the White Nile furnishes 29% of the Nile's total volume.
The fourth and fifth zones are the Blue Nile and the Atbara rivers, the Nile's eastern tributaries, which drain the Ethiopian highlands and Lake Tana and provide the greatest amount of water to the main river.
To the north the plains adjacent to the Sudd support high grasses; papyrus, water lettuce, and water hyacinth grow in and near the stream.

With the regulating, the waters of the river and controlling its flow into the sea, the two Republics agree that the United Arab Republic shall construct the Sudd el Aali in Aswan, the first of a series of structures on the Nile for the storage of waters over a one-year period.
The net advantages stemming from the Sudd el Aali shall be calculated on the basis of the natural flow of the river at Aswan, taken over the years of this century, which is estimated to be 84 billion cubic meters per year.
It is agreed that, when Sudd el Aali goes into full operation and stores water over a period of one year, the United Arab Republic shall no longer need to store water in the Gebel Aulia dam.

Public opinion was considerably moved, and in 1869 the khedive Ismail decided to send an expedition up the White Nile, with the double object of limiting the evils of the slave trade and opening up the district to commerce.
The command of the expedition was given to Sir Samuel Baker, who reached Khartum in February 1870, but, owing to the obstruction of the river by the sudd or grass barrier, did not reach Gondokoro, the centre of his province, for fourteen months.
From Khartum he proceeded up the White Nile fo Gondokoro, where he arrived in twenty-four days, the sudd, which had proved such an obstacle to Baker, having been removed since the departure of the latter by the Egyptian governor-general.

 The Nile Basin
It flows into the Sudd region, the great wetlands which are a maze of channels, lakes and swamps in southern Sudan, and which also receive water from the Bahr el Gazal River, originating in south-west Sudan.
The quantity entering the Sudd region varies greatly over the years, mainly depending on the rainfall in the upper catchment area, and hydrological measurements have shown that the greater the flow of water into the Sudd, the greater the percentage of water 'lost' in evaporation (Table 21 [42]).
In order to bypass the Sudd region and to direct downstream a proportion of the water considered lost each year by spill from the river and evaporation in the swamps, the construction of the Jonglei Canal had been planned.

 Saudi Aramco World : Arab Aid: In The Sudan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
In the southern half of The Sudan - Africa's largest country and potentially one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the world - a battle of giants is taking place near the White Nile: the world's biggest excavator versus the world's most formidable swamp.
Plague-ridden and almost impenetrable, the Sudd - an immense swamp the size of Florida - straddles the White Nile and separates The Sudan's Arab north and African south.
Despite its immense volume of water and the great force built up as it flows north from central Africa, the Nile slows and disperses as it reaches the stagnant, crocodile-infested sea of papyrus, ferns and rotting vegetation.

The Impact of the Sudd wetland on the Nile Hydroclimatology
The validated model is used to study the impact of the Sudd wetland on the Nile hydroclimatology by comparing two model scenarios: the present climatology, and a drained Sudd scenario.
The results indicate that draining the entire Sudd has negligible impact on the regional water cycle owing to the relatively small area covered by the wetland.
