Résumé
The Water shortage is the main problem facing any development in Egypt especially in the desert lands. River Nile is considered the main source of water in Egypt but its water feeds only the area of floodplain and with little amount feeds the desert areas of Egypt. The desert fringes west of EL-Minia governorate, Egypt, are areas of natural expansion for agricultural, industrial, and civil activities. This implies an increasing demand for groundwater and this led to a problem of groundwater level decrease in the Quaternary aquifer. A numerical groundwater model is one of the main tools used for assessing the resource potential and prediction of future impact under different circumstances and stresses. In this study, a regional groundwater flow model for Quaternary aquifer in El-Minia area, Egypt, was developed as a primary step towards groundwater management in the desert areas west of El-Minia governorate using local models. Geomorphologically, the study area is divided into three main geomorphological
