The land surface is largely a plain of low relief; jebels (hills) occur sporadically, and sandy soils are common in most areas except in the south where clayey soils predominate.

The first report that was devoted exclusively to the relationship of geology to the occurrence of ground water in Kordofan Province was written by Mansour ().

A plan for a province wide ground-water investigation was first submitted by Waite (). Most of his recommendations have been carried out in the form of this by: 4.

El Obeid water supply project, exploration of groundwater resources (unpublished), National Corporation for development of rural water resources, Ministry of Irrigation Author: Mohamed El Hadi, El Nazeer Elseed, Asim Elmansour. Fresh water is a scarcity in the North Kordofan province in the Sudan.

The need for new sources of water is large. This work deals with the problem of locating the groundwater aquifers used today and to find areas with groundwater potentials for development in the future.

Groundwater is an invisible natural resource. It is available in different proportions, in various rock types and at various depths, on the surface layer of the earth. people envision that ground water exists somehow in a mysterious, hidden system of underground rivers, reservoirs, and water “veins.” Although these terms may be use-ful when speaking metaphorically about ground water, they are far from accurate.

Ground water is water that fills pores and fractures in the ground, much as milk. The Eastern Cape Province is located on the south-eastern seaboard of South Africa ().It covers an area of approximately km 2, representing about 14% of South Africa's landmass (Statistics South Africa, ).Despite the existence of a range of alternative disposal technologies, waste management services in the province rely mainly on landfills and dump sites for the disposal of.

The present study proposes a new approach for indexing heavy metals ions to examine groundwater quality in North Kurdufan Province, Sudan.

The new approach is developed based on the most frequently used methods for indexing heavy metals pollution in water. It is created in order to avoid the weaknesses of the current indexing systems. As per the new indexing approach, heavy metal.

Groundwater, water that occurs below the surface of Earth, where it occupies all or part of the void spaces in soils or geologic strata.

Groundwater plays a vital role in the development of arid and semiarid zones, sometimes supporting agricultural and industrial enterprises that could not otherwise exist.

This book is the result of my journeys through the literature and as a geologist in several parts of the world.

It has been written for students of geology of all ages, in the simplest terms possible, and it has one objective: to provide a basis for an understanding of the mechanical role of water in geology.

Describe some of the ways that groundwater can become contaminated, and how contamination can be minimized Figure A spring flowing from a limestone cave on Quadra Island, B.C. [SE] As we saw in Chap fresh water makes up only 3% of the water on Earth.

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to geology. Geology – one of the Earth sciences – is the study of the Earth, with the general exclusion of present-day life, flow within the ocean, and the atmosphere.

The field of geology encompasses the composition, structure, physical properties, and history of Earth's components, and the processes by which it is. The Basin and Range hydrogeologic province includes 45 ground-water basins and 56 watersheds. The boundary with the Sierra Nevada province is defined by ground-water basin and watershed boundaries that approximate geologic boundaries; only one watershed (Upper Owens hydrologic area) was divided between the two provinces.

98 Groundwater Extraction. Except in areas where groundwater comes naturally to the surface at a spring (a place where the water table intersects the ground surface), we have to construct wells in order to extract it.

If the water table is relatively close to the surface, a well can be dug by hand or with an excavator, but in most cases we need to use a drill to go down deep enough.Water Use and Distribution Agricultural water use in the United States by state.

In the United States, billion gallons of ground and surface water are withdrawn for use each day, of which 76 billion gallons is fresh state of California accounts for 16% of national groundwater withdrawals. Utah is the second driest state in the United States behind its neighbor Nevada.The Nuba Mountains, also referred to as the Nuba Hills (Arabic: جبال النوبة ‎), is an area located in South Kordofan, area is home to a group of indigenous ethnic groups known collectively as the Nuba the Middle Ages, the Nuba mountains probably had been part of the Nubian kingdom of Alodia.

In the 18th century, they became home to the kingdom of Taqali that.
