Abstract

In this research, using the geophysical method, it was attempted to identify and study the different layers of the earth in terms of recognizing the boundary of salt and sweet water and engineering solutions to prevent the penetration of saline water into fresh water in the wells and also the method of exploitation The freshwater is enclosed between two layers of water in the Roudbar area of Kerman province. The results showed that the geophysical method in this region estimates the boundary of salt and sweet water interference with acceptable accuracy; therefore, it is possible to assess the geophysical results with acceptable information for groundwater studies. In order to study the hydrogeological characteristics of groundwater aquifers such as depth, aquifer thickness and determining the layers of fresh water and salinity and their boundary separation, a hydrologic survey was conducted in the city of Roudbar of Kerman province. Also, according to geophysical data, areas with high discharge potential in the study area are determined. Hydrological studies led to the determination of the complex aquifer status, the determination of the depth and thickness of the juice layer, the determination of the boundary of saline and sweet water, and the determination of suitable areas for drilling wells. By determining the surface of saline and deep saline water, a solution was needed to isolate the saline layer of the surface to prevent penetration into the deep water layer. The results showed that the maximum depth of drilling for the extraction of fresh water was determined.
