ملخص

Groundwater resources are highly stressed due to their overuse, especially in the arid region. This study is aimed at discovering
potential groundwater resource zones using currently available data and state-of-the-art methods. This will lead
to effective management of scarcely available and rapidly depleting groundwater resources in the Wadi Al-Jizi catchment,
located in the Al-Batinah region. Data on terrain characteristics, geology, and geomorphology was integrated using remote
sensing techniques and geographical information system (GIS). The result from this exercise was used for the identification
of areas with a high potential for groundwater availability. These areas were classified into five types, namely, excellent,
good, medium, low, and very low representing 11%, 59.5%, 26%, and 3.5% of the total area, respectively. The present study
shows that the integration of all the weighted parameters shows promising results in the zonation of groundwater. This study
shall be useful to the decision-makers in highlighting potential drilling as well as recharge sites in the area.
