Regional groundwater modeling is a valuable tool for ensuring the sustainable development and management of groundwater resources as it allows the assessment of the aquifer behavior under different types of hydrological stresses. The objective of this study was to use 3D flow modeling to assess the best options for managing groundwater in the Wadi Baysh basin in Saudi Arabia. The model for the Wadi Baysh aquifer system was based on groundwater monitoring data for 10-year period from 2007 to 2016...

Hydrochemical processes have a great influence on the groundwater quality especially in arid regions where groundwater is the single most important source of water supply. The present study was carried out in the Wadi Ad Dawasir region of Saudi Arabia. The objective of this study was to determine the processes influencing the groundwater composition in the region by integrated hydrochemical and statistical assessment. Hydrochemical data from 140 groundwater samples were interpreted using hydroch...

The objective of the present study was to assess the deterioration in groundwater quality due to saline water intrusion in the Ad-Darb region of southwestern Saudi Arabia. An integrated approach using geochemical and geophysical methods was applied to assess the extent of saline water intrusion. Geochemical methods involved the determination of main groundwater facies present in the region using Piper and extended Durov plots. The geophysical methods used in the study included seismic refraction...

Groundwater samples were collected in May 2015 from 23 wells distributed in the western part of Wadi Nisah, mainly used for irrigation. Calculation of saturation indices showed that the samples were generally undersaturated with respect to halite, gypsum, anhydrite, calcite, and aragonite. Groundwater facies analysis showed that most of the collected samples were dominated by Ca–Na–SO4-type water. This water type indicates rock–water interaction, mainly gypsum dissolution. The second major water...

Twenty infiltration tests and 12 pumping tests were carried out in Wadi Baysh in southwestern Saudi Arabia. The objective of the study was to assess the soil and aquifer permeability from the point of view of artificial groundwater recharge. Infiltration tests showed that the soil permeability values ranged from 0.58 to 37.15 m/day and showed good recharge potential. The analysis of the pumping tests showed that the aquifer permeability values ranged from 2.6 to 57.4 m/day and were approximately...

The central region of Saudi Arabia is underlain by thick sedimentary formations belonging to the Mesozoic and Cenozoic era. These sedimentary formations form a prolific aquifer supplying groundwater for agricultural and domestic usage in and around Riyadh. The region south of Riyadh City is well known for agricultural activities. Wadi Sahba, which is an eastward extension of Wadi Nisah, has readily available groundwater resources in the Cretaceous Biyadh sandstone aquifer to sustain agricultural...

To understand the impact of the influence of treated wastewater, a study was undertaken in the downstream side of Wadi Hanifa in the southern part of Riyadh City in Saudi Arabia. Chemical elements from 17 groundwater samples, 9 surface water samples (treated wastewater), and 14 soil samples were analyzed. Water facies analyses showed that both groundwater and surface water belong to the SO4-Cl class. However, the groundwater is characterized by high salinity (average value of 3547 mg/l), which m...

Abstract A moderate-sized earthquake of Mw 4.4 occurred in southwestern Saudi Arabia on 23 January 2014. The event is considered as the largest observed earthquake that has occurred in the epicentral area. To examine the seismogenic stress regime and resolve the fault plane ambiguity, the hypocenter locations and focal mechanisms were determined using well recorded waveforms of the broadband stations operated by the Saudi Geological Survey. The current analysis included dataset consisting of mai...

Coastal aquifers across the globe have been a subject of extensive research mainly because of problems related to saline water intrusion as a consequence of global climate changes and overabstraction of groundwater. The present work deals with the assessment of factors which affects the groundwater chemistry in parts of the Tihama coastal plains in the Jazan Province of southern Saudi Arabia. Hydrochemical parameters (pH, EC, TDS, major ions, NO3 and SiO2) were obtained from 263 wells and were i...
