Sudan is dominated by the River Nile and its tributaries. The terrain is generally flat plains, broken by several mountain ranges; in the east are the Red Sea Hills.
In the North there is the very dry Nubian Desert. Sudanís rainy season lasts for about three months (July to September). The dry regions are plagued by sand storms, known as haboob, which can completely block out the sun. In the northern and western semi-desert areas, people rely on the scant rainfall for basic agriculture and many are nomadic, traveling with their herds of sheep and camels.
Nearer the River Nile, there are well-irrigated farms growing cash crops.
There are several dams on the Blue and White Niles. Among them are the Sennar and Roseires on the Blue Nile, and Jebel Aulia dam on the White Nile. There is also Lake Nubia on the Sudan-Egyptian border.
