Résumé partiel
Qatar State occupies an arid peninsula of about 11 600 km2, extends along the western coast of Arabian Gulf from the main land mass of Arabia and is enclosed between latitudes 24’ 27’, 26’ 10’ North and longitudes 50’ 45’, 51’ 40’ East. The peninsula is about 180 km along its north-south axis and is about 85 km along its east-west axis (Fig. 1). The surface of Qatar peninsula is of low moderate relief with the highest altitudes of about 100m in southern Qatar. Meanwhile Northern Qatar is a plain having altitudes of about 30-40 m. The economy of Qatar depends mainly on oil and gas production. Nowadays the government of Qatar seeks for additional resources and priority is now given to agricultural production to satisfy basic food stuffs. Increasing agricultural production needs increasing water demand. As grc ndwater is the only water source for Qatar, then there is utmost need for exploring groundwater aquifers besides importing water from neigh·, 1uring countries and importing severe strains on the available groundwater resources. The present work deals with the hydrogeology, the hydrogeochemistry, groundwater resources, management and planning in Qatar Peninsula.
