Saline groundwater in Israel: its bearing on the water crisis in the country
Abstract One of the major causes for the deterioration of water quality bearing heavily on the water crisis in Israel is the ongoing contamination of its water resources by saline water bodies. TheExpand

Chemical composition of rainfall and groundwater in recharge areas of the bet shean-harod multiple aquifer system, Israel
The Bet Shean and Harod valleys are regional recipients and mixing zones for groundwaters draining from a regional multiple-aquifer system comprising two different carbonate and two basalt aquifersExpand

The Yarkon-Taninim groundwater basin, Israel hydrogeology: case study and critical review
Abstract The late Albian-Turonian Judea Group carbonate aquifer is one of the most important resources of fresh groundwater in the northern Negev and in the central part of Israel. Over three decadesExpand

A morphotectonic map of the northern Arava in Israel, derived from isobase lines
Abstract In areas characterized by flat and weakly incised relief built of young and lithologically uniform sediments, structural and tectonic maps are often non-existent or of no great avail. UnderExpand

Late Cretaceous-Early Tertiary Development of Depositional Basins in Samaria as a Reflection of Eastern Mediterranean Tectonic Evolution
The Mt. Scopus Group in Israel consists of chalk, chert, phosphorite, organic-rich carbonate (locally known as oil shale), and shale of Coniacian- Paleocene age. The rock sequence includes severalExpand

Quantitative assessment of the flow pattern in the southern Arava Valley (Israel) by environmental tracers and a mixing cell model
Abstract This paper demonstrates the implementation of a novel mathematical model to quantify subsurface inflows from various sources into the arid alluvial basin of the southern Arava Valley dividedExpand

Anthropogenically induced salinization of groundwater: A case study from the Coastal Plain aquifer of Israel
Abstract One of the most acute problems facing water resources in semi-arid regions is the ongoing salinization of groundwater. The example discussed in the paper is from the Coastal Plain aquifer ofExpand

The hydrochemical evolution of brackish groundwater in central and northern Sinai (Egypt) and in the western Negev (Israel)
Summary Cretaceous trans-boundary aquifers in the central and northern parts of Sinai (Egypt) and the Negev (Israel), are geographically and geologically both contiguous and continuous.Expand

Rare earths and yttrium hydrostratigraphy along the Lake Kinneret–Dead Sea–Arava transform fault, Israel and adjoining territories
Rare earth elements and Y (REY) have been analysed in 49 groundwaters from localities in the areas of Lake Kinneret and the Jordan and Arava Valleys. These waters originate from various aquifers andExpand

Transient simulations of large-scale hydrogeological processes causing temperature and salinity anomalies in the Tiberias Basin
Summary Hot and salty waters occur in the surroundings of the Lake Tiberias. Transient numerical simulations of thermally-driven flow without salinity effects show that mixed convection can explainExpand
