Title: Karablands in Sudan: Pedological and Geomorphological Study]
Author: Nasr, Ibrahim Saeed
Abstract: Karablands (Typical badlands) which lie along the banks of the River Atbara and its tributaries represent a unique phenomenon in the area, therefore it has been investigated thoroughly well. After a geomorphological and pedological studies, it appeared that, the karablands were a former in-land lake formed by the River Atbara which ended at that time (~ 7000 years approximately), at Goz Rajab village. The river deposited its load in that lake, by time the River Atbara reached The River Nile and made its way in its former deposits, due to climatic change towards drier periods which enhanced erosional processes that formed the karablands.
