Hydrogeological Interpretation
Once the geophysical parameters are standardized through information on lithology and groundwater conditions from boreholes, the observed variations in geophysical parameters are interpreted to reflect the hydrogeological variations. Thus, the geometry of the aquifers, the quality of water in them, and the potentiality of the aquifers are inferred for each area.
Aquifer-geometry maps of the areas are then produced, with information up to 200 m depth in hard rocks and 300 m depth in the sedimentary areas. Information is also provided on the suitability of near surface layers for artificial recharge and on recharge zones, and possibly as well on aquifer boundaries for mathematical modeling.
