Résumé
This research aims at assessing the groundwater resources and potentiality for development in South Egypt areas which include Toshka, Oweinat and Darb El Arbain. A regoional to local modeling conversion methodolgy was applied. A finite element-based regional model was developed for the Nubian Sandstone aquifer covering Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Chad where conversion to a local model covering the South Valley area of Egypt was implemented. Different development scenarios were simulated, where optimum groundwater extraction scenarios were suggested for each development area within the local study area. The results also showed that there is an opportunity for expansion based on groundwater at certain locations within the area of South Egypt which would support the national development planning. The study presented a demonstration of the benefits of applying regional to local modeling focusing techniques where refined local features resulted into enhanced assessment and prediction of groundwater potential.
