Northern Sinai has received great attention with respect to future agricultural development, especially after initiation of El Salam canal, as a source of irrigation. The research aim is to highlight on the nature and potentiality of the Quaternary aquifer in the northern Sinai. To achieve this target, a 256 groundwater samples were collected and analyzed chemically with respect to major ions, SiO2, B3+, PO43-, NO3-, Br-, I- , Pb2+, Fe3+, Cd2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Zn2+, and Co2+. Five infiltration… 

Management of groundwater resources in arid areas case study: North Sinai, Egypt

The management of coastal aquifers requires careful planning of withdrawal strategies for control and remediation of saltwater intrusion. Over exploitation of groundwater in coastal aquifers may

Morphotectonic controls of groundwater flow regime and relating environmental impacts in Northwest Sinai, Egypt

The frequent appearance of some hydro-environmental hazard features, such as waterlogging and soil salinization along the susceptible zones at Northwest Sinai area (NWSA), has put serious challenges

Al Bardawil Lagoon Hydrological Characteristics

Al Bardawil Lagoon is a very saline lagoon located in North Sinai, Egypt. It is subjected to environmental changes due to the implementation of a mega agricultural project close to its southern

Land and Groundwater Assessment for Agricultural Development in the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt

Management of land and water resources in arid regions is vital and opens the way for new agricultural activities and growth of residential communities. The Sinai Peninsula suffers from water

Integrated Geoenvironmental and Geotechnical Risk Assessment of East Port Said Region, Egypt for Regional Development

The present paper discusses the use of integrated topographical, hydrogeological, and geotechnical data as a tool to assess the suitability of the East Port Said Region (EPR) for the establishment of



Assessment of the surface water quality in Northern Greece.

Hydrogeologic controls on groundwater recharge and salinization: a geochemical analysis of the northern Hueco Bolson aquifer, Texas, USA

Identification of hydrogeologic controls on groundwater flowpaths, recharge, and salinization is often critical to the management of limited arid groundwater resources. One approach to identifying

The relation between the lowering of the Piezometric surface and the rate and duration of discharge of a well using ground‐water storage

When a well is pumped or otherwise discharged, water-levels in its neighborhood are lowered. Unless this lowering occurs instantaneously it represents a loss of storage, either by the un-watering of

Mountain-Block Hydrology and Mountain-Front Recharge.

In semiarid climates, a significant component of recharge to basin aquifers occurs along the mountain front. Traditionally called “mountain-front recharge” (MFR), this process has been treated by

Drawdown in a well of large diameter

A solution for the drawdown in a large-diameter well discharging at a constant rate from a homogeneous isotropic artesian aquifer, which also takes into consideration the water derived from storage

Methods of soil analysis
