—Twenty seismic refraction profiles, three Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) and Three Electrical Resistivity Tomograms (ERT), using Wenner Array were acquired along Wadi Al-Ain, in order to study the aquifer's geometry, groundwater level and locate the promising sites for future drilling. The seismic velocities distribution analysis indicated that, there are three different zones ranging between (590 – <1400 m/s), (1400 – <1800 m/s) and (1800 – 5300 m/s). The obtained results show that the… CONTINUE READING
