Abstract

Identification of low or high soluble layers is among the applications of geophysical science, in addition to determining the depth and amount of water, as well as checking the path of the hydrous layer and the genus of the layers of the earth. In order to study the characteristics of groundwater such as depth, thickness and area of aquifer and determining the layers of sweet water and saline water and their salts and their separation, a hydrologic survey was conducted in the area of a well in the Roodbar city of southern Kerman province (Zahhkolt region). Also in this research, areas with high discharge potential are determined based on geophysical data. Hydrology studies were conducted to determine the complexity of the aquifer, to determine the depth and thickness of the hydrous layer, to determine the boundary of saline and sweet water, and to determine suitable sites for drilling wells. By determining the surface and deep salty water layer, a solution was necessary to isolate the salty water layer surface to prevent penetration into the deep-water layer and the maximum depth of drilling for freshwater extraction was determined.
