Sources and health risk assessments of nitrate in groundwater, West of Tahta area, Sohag, Egypt
_Due to natural and anthropogenic human activities in arid and semi-arid regions, groundwater will continuously suffer from severe contaminations such as increases in nitrate levels. Groundwater contamination poses serious threats to the environment and human health. In the current study, 23 groundwater samples were collected from the desert zone around the wastewater treatment plant west of Tahta area, Sohag, Egypt. ... Read more

Characterization and environmental impact assessment of gold mine tailings in arid regions: a case study of Barramiya gold mine area, Eastern Desert, Egypt.
Geochemical and mineralogical characterization and environmental impact assessment were performed on Barramiya gold mine tailings, Eastern Desert, Egypt. The Barramiya gold mine is situated within ophiolite decorated Nugrus suture zone, which composed of dismembered sequence of highly deformed and metamorphosed mafic to ultramafic rocks and their hydrothermal alteration products (carbonate rocks), interbedded with meta-volcano clastic rocks of the Nubian Shield. ...

Sources and behavior of trace elements in groundwater in the South Eastern Desert, Egypt
Due to water scarcity, the groundwater will represent an essential source of water in many communities worldwide. This study was carried out to investigate the main hydrogeochemical characteristic of trace elements composition, their sources, and its vulnerability in groundwater to the human population. Fifteen groundwater samples were collected from boreholes and hand dug wells from the South Eastern Desert, Egypt, ... Read more

Alteration parameters affecting the Luxor Avenue of the Sphinxes-Egypt
Stone alteration in the environment is caused by various extrinsic disintegration agents, besides, their intrinsic properties “mineralogical composition, textures and internal structure”. Therefore, the purpose of the current study was to evaluate the weathering state affecting the Luxor Avenue of the Sphinxes by studying its chemical, mineralogical and physio-mechanical characteristics, in addition to morphological features. Scientific techniques, such as X-ray ... Read more

Chemical characteristics and assessment of groundwater quality in Halayieb area, southeastern part of the Eastern Desert, Egypt
Halayieb area is located at the southeastern corner on the border between Egypt and Sudan. The area has very important strategic aspects to Egypt. Groundwater is the only source of fresh water in the area. The hydrogeochemical characterizations of groundwater in the area were carried out, to assess the quality of groundwater for its suitability for drinking and irrigation purposes. ... Read more
