AbstractThe current study focuses mainly on understanding the hydrogeological framework of southeast Hiw, Qena, Egypt, as one of the promising regions for land reclamation and future development. This includes defining the groundwater aquifers and delineating their lateral extents, depths, and thicknesses, as well as getting some information on the groundwater quality in the area. These objectives have been accomplished by the integrated interpretation of remote sensing imagery and vertical electrical sounding (VES) data. The digital elevation model (DEM) of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) was processed to calculate the surface gradient and delineate the structural lineaments and drainage channels. Moreover, VES data were measured at 32 locations using Schlumberger configuration. The result of the VES survey has been presented in the form of 2D cross-sections, 3D fence diagram, and hydrogeophysical contour maps. They reveal that the Quaternary sand is the main groundwater aquifer in the region. It has a depth of 30 to 58 m, a thickness of 30 to 68 m, and a resistivity range of 48 to 93 omega.m. Furthermore, an empirical resistivity-salinity relationship was developed. Accordingly, total dissolved solids (TDS) values vary from 600 to 1500 ppm. This study improves the understanding of the subsurface geology of the region and serves as a guide for further studies regarding digging new wells and groundwater management in such an arid environment.
