NAME OF ORGANISATION:
Prince Faisal Center for Dead Sea, Environmental and Energy Research, Mutah University
A detailed evaluation of the resistivty distribution in both vertical and horizontal directions is an essential requirement in geophysical exploration for underground water. The electrical resistivty sounding technique, utilizing generally the Schlumberger electrode configuration, supplies the required information on the resistivity variation of subsurface rocks, their types, thicknesses, water-saturation and the water quality. Distributing the electrical traverses across the study area allows the evaluation of resistivities and their variation in both horizontal and vertical dimensions.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The mission of Prince Faisal Center for Dead Sea, Environmental and Energy Research,( PFC-DSEER) is to encourage, conduct, and coordinate Dead Sea, environmental, water and energy research and related activities. With primary emphasis placed on Dead Sea critical problems, PFC-DSEER programs expand to encompass national and international water, environmental and energy issues of common concern
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
