Résumé partiel
The north eastern part of the eastern desert is considered as one of the most important vital areas in Egypt because it includes the national industrial project area. The area of study lies around the Wadi Ghweibba area in the north eastern part of the eastern desert, Egypt. It covers an area of about 66.3 km2 and lies between longitudes 32o 13′ 29″ and 32o 19′ 17″ E and latitudes 29o 37′ 23″ and 29o 40′ 42″ N. The different activities in this area depend mainly on the groundwater that is pumped intensively from different water-bearing formations or aquifers. It should be noted that the groundwater in the investigated area is used mainly for tourist and industrial purposes. The main purpose of the present study is to an assessment of groundwater potential and aquifer characteristics of the groundwater occurrences in the area of study. The integrated geophysical tools, especially resistivity, well logging, and magnetic methods with the modern techniques (remote sensing and GIS data) are commonly used in groundwater exploration. Also, the Hydrochemical composition of groundwater is an important factor in the determination of its types, origin, quality, and suitability for different purposes. It is mainly based on the chemical analysis of the collected water samples from the wells tapping the groundwater aquifers. The applied of these integrated methods help in determining the depth to the basement rocks, the thickness of the sedimentary cover, the different water-bearing formations, and finally the structural elements which have an important on the groundwater occurrences in the area of study. from applied of these integrated methods, the central part of the area of study shows the best sites for drilling more boreholes to get out the groundwater, which necessary for Living, Agriculture, and development of the area of study.
