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

Using Na/K ratios to assess the potential impacts of wastewater treatment facilities on the groundwater quality in Sohag area, the Nile Valley, Egypt.
Improper disposal of wastewater is an important source of groundwater contamination, as it poses serious threats to the environment and human health. In this case study, 18 groundwater and 3 sewage effluent samples were collected from the area adjacent to a wastewater treatment plant in Sohag, Egypt. These samples were subjected to detailed chemical and bacteriological analyses to quantify the ... Read more

Effect of Water-Rock Interaction Processes on the Hydrogeochemistry of Groundwater West of Sohag Area, Egypt
Groundwater is used intensively for land reclamations and domestic purposes in new reclaimed areas west of the Nile Valley in Sohag Governorate, Upper Egypt as it is the only source of water in the area. Twenty-six groundwater samples are collected to evaluate the hydrochemical characteristics and the impact of water–rock interaction on the chemistry of groundwater using classical geochemical and ...

Groundwater Management at West El-Minia Desert Area, Egypt Using Numerical Modeling
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 covers only the area of flood plain where its tributaries do not reach to the desert. The desert fringes, west of El-Minia governorate, Egypt, are areas of natural expansion for ... Read more

Multicriteria decision analysis based on analytic hierarchy process in GIS environment for siting nuclear power plant in Egypt
Due to increasing demand of electrical energy and freshwater in Egypt, it is safe to assume that the decision makers will turn to nuclear power as the feasible alternative for energy. However, as time goes by, fewer sites will be available and suitable for nuclear power plant development. Site selection is a key phase of the siting process of a ... Read more

2015 | Keywords Groundwater,
Groundwater level-rise monitoring and recharge determination at an old archaeological site: Abydos, Sohag, Egypt.
Archaeological sites in Egypt used to stand in dry environments as the ancient architects planned. Several sites are found nowadays bathed in water and seriously threatened by groundwater rise. Groundwater level rising became a phenomenon causing problems to temple construction. Abydos is one of these sites, located about 13 km west of the River Nile in El-Balyana District, Sohag Governorate. ... Read more

Abydos is one of the oldest archaeological sites in Upper Egypt. It is located in western flood plain of the River Nile at Sohag Governorate, and about 13 km west of the River Nile course. However, this site is threatened by groundwater rise. For any archaeological site, it is necessary to be placed within its wider natural environment, and to ... Read more

Hydrogeochemical characteristics and age dating of groundwater in the Quaternary and Nubian aquifer systems in Wadi Qena, Eastern Desert, Egypt
The study area is a part of Wadi Qena, Eastern Desert. It is one of the largest promising areas for development in Upper Egypt. A new desert road was constructed to join Upper Egypt to the Red Sea, passing through the wadi. This accelerates the forms of development in the middle part of the wadi. The development focused on new ... Read more

Hydrogeological conditions and aquifers potentiality for sustainable development of the desert areas in Wadi Qena, Eastern Desert, Egypt
To increase the potentiality of development and land reclamation activities, the Egyptian government funds the construction of a new desert road in Upper Egypt. This road connects Upper Egypt with the Red Sea Governorate. Surrounding the road is 207,000 acres of land surface which is almost flat and suitable for reclamation. To ensure the sustainability of the proposed development surrounding ... Read more
