Detailed geomorphological study of the Nagada region, west of-the Nile enables us to better understand the main landfonns in this part of Upper Egypt. Six geomorphic features are recognized including: the Thebaid plateau; the Plateau footslopes; the Pliocene and Quaternary terraces; the Nile flood plain, the drainage pattern and" the Nile channel. The study provided more data on the Pliocene - Quaternary terraces. These terraces are important because they host many predynastic sites.
