Geoelectrical Study On The Area West Of Aswan Town, Egypt
MetadataShow full item record
A geoelectrical resistivity survey on the area west of Aswan has been conducted in order to investigate its prevailing hydrogeological and subsurface geological conditions. The study demonstrates the occurrence of a probably water-bearing bed of irregular thickness and variable depth. The change in resistivity values within the aquifer may reflect the variation in water quality and rock texture. The aquifer is mainly recharged across the dominant joint system and through fractures from the Nile and occasionally to some extent in earlier periods from rainfall. An attempt to recognize the basement relief was made by using the resistivity results only.
