Image Caption: This view shows the confluence of the White Nile and the Blue Nile rivers to form the Nile River at Khartoum, the capital city of Sudan (15.5N, 32.5E). The White Nile comes from the south and drains the Sudd swamp and African Rift Valley while the Blue Nile comes from the southeast draining the Ethiopian highlands. The herringbone field patterns to the south of the city are agricultural fields where cotton is the main crop.
