Vulnerability assessment has become an important element for wise resource management and land use planning. This work examined the sensitivity of karstic aquifers, in the area of Irbid governorate northwest Jordan, to surface contamination by applying the EPIK method, and then compared this susceptibility evaluation to water-chemistry data collected from wells and springs within the area. An additional objective was to demonstrate the combined use of the EPIK and geographical information… Expand
