Abstract (in english)
   Different geophysical tools such as geoelectrical, gravity and magnetic are perfect for delineating the geometry of groundwater aquifer, subsurface structural elements which control the extension and thickness of the aquifer. Also, the seismological data records were used for differentiating the active fault elements in study area. In the present study, 7 deep vertical electrical soundings have been measured by using AB/2 ranging from 5 m to 3000 m to reach the depth of upper and lower surface of the Nubian sandstone aquifer. The results of quantitative interpretation of resistivity data indicated that the depth of the upper surface of Nubian sandstone aquifer was ranging from 366 m to 845 m. Three hundred-thirty gravity stations have been measured to cover the study area. Results of quantitative interpretation indicated that the area was dissected by different fault trends such as NE-SW, NW-SE, N-S and E-W trends.
