Research Projects - Assessment and Development of Renewable Groundwater Resources
The project is focused on groundwater exploration in the Quetta Valley, Pakistan, for which inferences from remote sensing data are being integrated with observations extracted from other relevant data sources such as geochemistry, field geology, geophysics, and surface runoff and groundwater flow modeling for a better understanding of the hydrological setting, the groundwater potentialities, and for identifying potential locations for productive wells.
