About this book


This unique volume offers an up-to-date overview of all the main aspects of groundwater in the Nile Delta and its fringes, as well as latest research findings. The themes covered include:

·       Nile Delta aquifer formation and its characteristics

·       The use of the groundwater in the Nile Delta and its implications

·       Sedimentology and hydrogeophysical characteristics

·       Groundwater investigations and aquifer characterization using current direct resistivity and induced polarization

·       Groundwater contamination and degradation

·       Saltwater intrusion and its control

·       Delineation of groundwater flow and seawater intrusion using various techniques, including one-dimensional subsurface temperature profiles, geoelectrical resistivity, and integrated subsurface thermal regime and hydrogeochemical data

·       Modeling of groundwater and of saltwater intrusion in the Nile Delta aquifer

·       Excessive pumping and groundwater quality assessment for irrigation and drinking purposes

·       Groundwater management for sustainability in the Nile Delta.

The volume appeals to postgraduate students, researchers, scientists, professionals, decision makers and planners.​
