Résumé partiel
Wadi El-Nakheil, is located in the Eastern desert of Egypt and lies between Latitudes 26° 5̀ and 26° 12̀ N and Longitudes 34° 5’ and 34° 9̀ E. (about 12 km west of Quseir area). It represents one of the most promising areas for land reclamation and future projects depending on groundwater for land irrigation and human use. Scope of the Present Study : The present study was conducted to investigate the groundwater potentiality at Wadi El Nakhil area. To achieve this goal integrated high resolution airborne magnetic survey and inland seismic refraction measurements were utilized. The objectives of the present study were ; (1) to estimate the basement depth, and consequently the thickness of the sedimentary cover which may provide some insights into the ground water potentiality at the site using airborne magnetic survey ; (2) mapping the subsurface distributions of geoseismic layers and hence determine the lithology and geometry of shallow and deep water bearing formations using seismic refraction measurements ; (3) determine the subsurface structure/lineaments that may play a role in groundwater flow direction and catchment.
