      Two distinct prehistoric cultures were discovered at the site: the early Holocene Kiffian culture, and the middle Holocene Tenerian culture. In very good condition. The vast diversity of languages among the Nuba Mountains indicates that the mountains served as a retreat area by many people in the past. However, it is currently extinct in the wild in Egypt and Libya. When the North African monsoon is at its strongest annual precipitation and subsequent vegetation in the Sahara region increase, resulting in conditions commonly referred to as the " green Sahara ". Relief Sudan is mainly composed of vast plains and plateaus that are drained by the Nile River and its tributaries.

      The escarpment overlooks a narrow coastal plain that is 10 to 25 miles 16 to 40 km wide and festooned with dunes and coral reefs. These mountains form the Nile-Congo watershed and the western boundary of the clay plain. The Saharan silver ant is unique in that due to the extreme high temperatures of their habitat, and the threat of predators, the ants are active outside their nest for only about ten minutes per day. The descending airflow is the strongest and the most effective over the eastern part of the Great Desert, in the Libyan Desert: this is the sunniest, driest and the most nearly "rainless" place on the planet, rivaling the Atacama Desertlying in Chile and Peru. Although these industries have introduced potentially high-wage jobs to the Sahara, they are also responsible for the displacement of desert peoples from their traditional modes of existence and have contributed to the increasing overcrowding and poverty in developed regions. The most interesting find is a triple burial, dated to years ago, of an adult female and two children, estimated through their teeth as being five and eight years old, hugging each other.

      Katulissi is a language that has just recently been put into writing. This was caused principally by a stronger monsoonal circulation throughout the sub-tropical regions, affecting India, Arabia and the Sahara. Hot, dry air masses primarily form over the North-African desert from the heating of the vast continental land area, and it affects the whole desert during most of the year. Language: German. Temperatures in the coldest months are above 20 degrees Celsius and over 30 degrees Celsius in the hottest months.
