Abstract: The natural environment and the manufacturing function are becoming inextricably linked. Profitability, productivity and environmental consciousness are increasingly viewed as integral of manufacturing organizations. For manufacturers,...
Abstract The present study includes detailed hydrochemical assessment of groundwater resources of Saq aquifer. The Saq aquifer covers a large area (about 375,000 km2) and lies in the arid region with low annual rainfall and extremely high...
Abstract: Heavy metals in agricultural soils enter the food chain when taken up by plants. The main purpose of this work is to determine metal contamination in agricultural farms in northwestern Saudi Arabia. Fifty surface soil samples were...
a b s t r a c t Mapping the spatial distributions of the fluvial deposits in terms of particles size as well as imaging the near-surface features along the non-vegetated aeolian sand-sheets, provides valuable geological information. Thus this work...
Abstract The Wajid Sandstone of southeastern Saudi Arabia is a prolific aquifer and a recent target for hydrocarbon exploration, but a sedimentologic model and the stratigraphic architecture of the sediments have only recently been presented for the...
Abstract The meteorite found in the Empty Quarter of the KSA is the largest meteorite and has the shape of an irregular ellipsoid of semi axes (0.65 × 0.38 × 0.27) and density of 6400 kg/m3 and mass of 2550 kg. It is a massive piece belonging to the...
Abstract In the current study, the experimental results of the investigation on the compositional, mechanical and magnetic properties of Saudi meteorite were presented. Meteorite specimen was examined using techniques like scanning electron...
ABSTRACT In recent years, outcrop analogue studies have become a powerful tool in sedimentology for the assessment of reservoirs, both in hydrocarbon and aquifer studies. Data from exploratory drilling campaigns can be augmented significantly by...
Abstract 8 The Jabal Aja Ring Complex (ARC) is a Late Ediacaran composite pluton of post-collisional A- 9 type granites in the northeastern part of the Arabian Shield. It is an elliptical body with 10 discontinuous ring-shaped outcrops due to later...
A B S T R A C T The present study aims to evaluate, discriminate and delineate the geological and petrophysical situation of Oligocene reservoir wells at Salamat-1 and Atoll-1 in North Damietta offshore concession in the Mediterranean Sea. It deals...
Abstract Integrated studies on pore fabric anisotropy have increased the general understanding of fluid flow patterns through reservoir rocks. In this study, pore anisotropy was studied based on measuring permeability and formation resistivity...
Abstract: The Abu Dabbab albite granite (ADAG), in the central Eastern Desert of Egypt, hosts the most significant rare metal ore deposit in the northern part of the Neoproterozoic Arabian-Nubian Shield. Here, we report detailed field, petrographic...
ABSTRACT The Bir Umq ophiolite is one of the most important ophiolitic successions in the Arabian Shield, and represents an excellent case for the study of the tectonomagmatic evolution of the earliest Precambrian events in the juvenile part of the...
Abstract Sixty-five water samples were collected in July 2016 in the Mathura district and have experimentally determined the physio-chemical parameters and evaluated by comparing their values with Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The aim of the...
