ABSTRACT

This introductory chapter reports about the main geographic and geomorphologic features of Ethiopia. The prevailing soil types are described and soil erosion data are reported and analyzed. A brief description of the natural vegetation is provided as well. The country’s main geomorphological landscapes regions are identified as follows: (1) the northern highlands, including (i) the volcanic plug belt of Adwa, (ii) the central highlands and (iii) the southwestern highlands; (2) the Rift Valley, which consists of three main portions, namely the northern, central, and southern trunks and the Afar and Danakil depressions; (3) the southern plateau, which consists of a northern and southern sector and includes also the Ogaden tableland gently descending to Somalia and the Indian Ocean. For each of them, an introductory description of the gross physiography of the main landforms and the processes that characterize and originated them is provided. More... »
