Article or Chapter TitleA Quantitative Moadel to Predict a Safe Yield for Well Fields in Kufra and Sarir Basins, Libya
Record Number10232
Journal or Book TitleGround Water
Primary author or editorAhmad, Moid U.;
Description"The Kufra and Sarir basins of Libya have huge ground-water resources. Three well fields -Sarir, Kufra, and Jalo- have been constructed for irrigation purposes. The Tazerbo and West Sarir well fields are under construction. Wells in these well fields have tapped only a small portion of the total ground water available. The hydrological behavior of the Sarir well field (determined by using analytical and numerical models) indicated a leaky artesian aquifer and a significant partial penetration effect. Long- and short-term pump tests did not provide true estimates of the values of transmissivity and the coefficient of storage. A steady-state model of the Kufra and Sarir basins indicated a minimum of 80 m3/s of underflow entering from Tibesti, Chad and Sudan. A transient model was constructed to pump a total of 120 m3/s from 14 well fields. The simulation indicated that sufficient drawdown was available to last at least 50 years."--Title page
