Article
Full-text available
With the increase in population and establishment of agricultural and industrial projects, the utilization of groundwater became more important for Kurdistan region. The increased demand for water in Kurdistan for different purposes has led to an increased consumption of groundwater from the aquifers. A three-dimensional finite-difference groundwat...
Article
Full-text available
Increasing water demand in Kurdistan region has prompted the need to quantify the available groundwater resources. In semi-arid region, the groundwater recharge estimation is difficult due to the large variability of hydrological events in space and time. Shaqlawa-Harrir basin covered an area about 1150 km2, and rainfall is the main source for repl...
Article
Full-text available
Groundwater as an important component of the hydrological cycle and it is the main resource for irrigation and domestic water supply particularly in arid and semi-arid area, where groundwater is a key feature that controls the distribution of vegetation. Distribution of vegetation was compared in the Shaqlawa Basin located in Kurdistan Region, Nort...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change and the fast growth of industrial and agricultural enterprises can have a negative impact on groundwater quality. The evaluation of groundwater quality is an important issue to determine the suitability of water for agriculture and other purposes in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The quality of water is an important indicator for sele...
Article
Full-text available
Water scarcity is a major problem in the arid climate of Iraq’sWestern Desert and people struggle to manage the precarious water supply. Harvesting rainwater is one sustainable method that can be used to increase the supply of water. Rainwater harvesting systems (RWH) are considered to be sustainable “if they can continue collecting, utilising, and...
Article
Full-text available
Water resource management and the investigation of the quality and quantity of groundwater and surface water is important in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The growing population, as well as agricultural and industrial projects, consume huge amounts of water, especially groundwater. A total of 572 ground and surface water samples were collected for...
Article
Full-text available
The present research attempts to study detail morphometric analysis of Harrir and Shaqlawa watersheds in the northeastern part of Erbil city, north of Iraq. The areas of the watersheds are 350 Km² and 223 Km² for Harrir and Shaqlawa, respectively. To achieve the aims of this study, the ALOS PALSAR Digital Elevation Model data, and Geo-information (...

Article
Groundwater quality and quantity are important factors for controlling water management. The importance of the hydrochemical analysis underlies the fact that the chemistry of the ground water can directly be rated with the source of water, climate, and geology of the region. The study includes the hydrochemical characterization of groundwater in Ko...
