Developing Cost-effective Methodologies for Groundwater Assessment and Exploration in Sinai

Adam Sinai

Due to the inadequate umber of hydrologic monitoring stations in Egypt, We are installing a telemetric rain gauge and steamflow monitoring stations in Sinai to aid in calibrating rainfall-runff models. In addition, recharge rates are being estimated using field-based techniques (Chloride mass balance and soil temperature probes). This calibration will enable better characterization and monitoring of key reservoirs of, and fluxes to, the water cycles in these areas.
