The aim of this study was to use the FAO-56 single and dual crop coefficient approaches to estimate actual evapotranspiration (ET a) over an irrigated citrus orchard under drip and flood irrigations in Marrakech, Morocco. The results showed that, by using crop coefficients suggested in the FAO-56 paper, the performance of both approaches was poor for two(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o One of the most serious environmental issues related to mining industry in Morocco and elsewhere around the world, is the pollution from abandoned mine sites. Mine wastes cause obvious sources of soil contaminations. Climatic effects such as heavy rainfall engender metal dispersion in semi-arid areas, since soils are typically and(More)

The aim of this study was to assess the impact of three sources of pollution (landfill leachate, wastewater and mining activities) on the physico-chemical characteristics of surface water and groundwater in the northern region of Marrakech (Morocco). Numerous groundwater samples and surface water (Tensift River) samples were collected during the dry season(More)
In arid and semi-arid areas, rainfall is often characterized by a strong spatial and temporal variability. These environmental factors, combined with the sparsity of the measurement networks in developing countries, constitute real constraints for water resources management. In recent years, several spatial rainfall measurement sources have become(More)
11 Understanding the spatial distribution of air temperature in mountainous areas is essential in 12 hydrological modelling. In the Moroccan High-Atlas range, the meteorological stations network 13 is sparse. In order to get additional information, we investigated the thermal infrared data 14 supplied by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM+) sensor onboard(More)
