Description :
As a consequence of the intensive groundwater extraction, a numeric simulation of the groundwater flow for the entire area of the Nubian Aquifer System has been carried out. Purpose of the regional model was to determine the degree of non-equilibrium and the time response of the system on climatic change. This was done in a retrospective simulation of the groundwater movement during the last 8000 years. Then, the model was used in order to predict the reaction of the system on several proposed development projects in libya and Egypt.
