Environmental consequences of the improper landapplication of sewage wastewater disposal, Sohag Egypt: Soil and Ground water pollution.
Over the past several years, land application of sewage wastewater has been becoming an increasingly common method of disposing in Egypt. Assessment of the environmentalconsequences of the improper land application of waste disposal in Sohag area is the mainobjective of the present study. Heavy metals were estimated in the soil applied for disposal at twodifferent sites. Groundwater from these sites ... 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 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
