Groundwater Resources Studies of the Rub’ Al Khali Desert
The project focuses on the assessment of the groundwater resources in the Rub’ Al Khali Desert in Saudi Arabia, including the development of a regional water management plan.
The assessment of water quality and total groundwater instorage is a major task of this study.
For elaboration of comprehensive information about the natural groundwater related conditions (geology, meteorology, hydrology, hydrogeology), deep exploration and observation wells have been drilled, the deepest in the center of Rub’ Al Khali desert, 2,625m deep into Wasia aquifer.
The project revealed information on additional freshwater resources updating the Kingdom’s long-term water resources management plan.
