Groundwater Exploration in Izki
In sedimentary and Ophiolite context, the groundwater is generally located in the pore space of permeable rock layers. Depending on the rock porosity, rock permeability and sometime fracture and karstic network, the number of ground water table, their thickness and their spatial heterogeneity may vary greatly. Groundwater is One of the important source of water wealth in Oman, it’s about 15% from the total annual rainfall which’s 100 ml, the other 80% is evaporated, 5% is transported and what is remain is stored as groundwater as it mentioned by Ministry of Regional Municipal and Water Resources. In order to locate the most favorable site to setup a drilling, several geophysical investigations can be performed. In this project which’s located in Izki (ALdhakliea), ERT surveys with ten measurements line was carried out using the Syscal Pro Switch instrument in order to investigate groundwater.
