Jordan is one of the many countries apart of the Middle East. This country has a population of 5,795,000 and holds many common traditions. Jordan's capital is Amman and exports phosphate while they import crude oil. They speak the Arabic language. An important event that occurred in Jordan was in 2011-2013 and in this time period hundreds of thousands of refugees poured into Jordan.

What's going on in Jordan

Phosphate- A mineral salt used in fertilizers.

Phosphate is used in many places such as a resource in Egypt, mining in Senegal, and several Micronesian islands. Phosphate supplies are now gone on Kiribati. The Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands have phosphate, but lack the money to mine this resource. Jordan's natural resource is phosphate and exports this resource too.

Aquifer- Underground rock layer that water flows through.

In Libya, there are no permanent rivers, but aquifers lie beneath the vast desert. An aquifer may be a layer of loose gravel or sand, a layer of porous sandstone, a limestone layer, or even an igneous or metamorphic body of rock. Aquifers occur near the surface or buried thousands of feet below the surface. Porosity and permeability are important measures of producibility in aquifers. Porosity is the ratio of the volume of voids in a rock or soil to the total volume. Porosity determines the storage capacity of aquifers.

Who were the Berbers?

The Berbers were the first people known to live in North Africa. They are distributed in an area stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Siwa Oasis in Egypt, and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Niger River. While Berbers are stereotyped as nomads, and indeed some tribes are, the majority are typically farmers. Virtually all Berbers by the twenty-first century were Muslims, and like most North Africans, are of Sunni Islam orthodoxy.

What is OPEC?

OPEC is the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The establishment and growth of OPEC is the history of the growing sovereignty of oil producing countries over their natural resources. Through the collaboration of its Member Countries, and through cooperative relationships with other international organizations, OPEC has consistently looked for ways to fulfill its mission of coordinating and unifying the petroleum policies of its Member Countries, and ensuring the stabilization of oil markets.

List Egypt's main crops.

Sugarcane, grains, vegetables, fruits, and cotton. Egyptian society was highly stratified, and social status was expressly displayed. Farmers made up the bulk of population, but agricultural produce was owned directly by the state, temple, or noble family that owned the land. Farming in Egypt was dependent on the cycle of the Nile River. Egypt received little rainfall, so farmers relied on the Nile to water their crops.
