Résumé
The world’s surface fresh water resources are relatively meager to satisfythe needs of various nations. As such, groundwater is the most suitablesource to cover the gap between water demand and the already availableresources in many nations. It is, therefore, necessary to develop newtechniques to locate and estimate groundwater. Geophysical methods couldcontribute as a useful tool for groundwater investigation as it can exploresubsurface layers in a short time and more economic to carry out beforedrilling. Geophysical methods deal with the application of sound and well establishedphysical principles to the solution of geological problems. In geophysical exploration, the geological information of an area can be used to increaseour knowledge about the potentialities of groundwater, the determinationof the structures controlling its flow, and the aquifer conditions (itsrecharge,discharge, and storage). 1.1.Location of The Study Area : The area under investigation occupies the most southwestern part of 2 theWesternDesert of Egypt covering an area of about 90000 Km (Fig. 1-1). It is locatedbetween latitudes 22° and 24° N, and longitudes 29° and 33° E. Itsboundariesare the Egyptian - Sudanese border from the south, Aswan - Kharga& Dakhla Oases from the north, Lake Nasser from the east, and Sir Tarafawifrom the west. According to the available data, the study area has been divided into twosubareas:The first one is named the East Tarafawi area (Fig. 1-2), which liesbetweenlatitudes 22° 33\ and 23° 52\ N, and longitudes 29° 00\ and \ 30° 06 E, and is situated south of the Kharga Oasis along Darb El Aroain road.The second area is named the Abu Simbil area (Fig. 1-3), it is located southof the Aswan city - near the Abu Simbil town and along the Aswan-Abu.
