Monthly variations of some physical and chemical characteristics of Nile waters at Assiut (375 km south from Cairo, Egypt) during the period from September 1980 to September 1982 were followed and discussed. As expected, the maximum temperature was recorded in summer and the minimum in winter. The p H values of Nile waters were recorded to be in the vicinity of 8.0. The highest oxygen concentrations were recorded in the summer months, mainly due to the relatively high photosynthetic activity.
