Euphrates-Tigris River Basin Presentation

Abstract from the document:

In conformity with the expert judgments of geographers, the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers can be considered as forming one single transboundary watercourse system: they are linked not only by their natural course when merging at the Shatt-al-Arab, but also as a result of a man-made Thartar Canal (the canal, which links the Tigris to the Euphrates through the Thartar Valley, has already been realised and has been operative since 1988) connection between the two rivers in Iraq.
