Land use, land cover changes and the link with groundwater

This research aims to produce a potential groundwater zone in Nahr Al-Jaouz River Basin, Lebanon using geospatial technologies (remote sensing and GIS). A variety of data is used to predict the potential groundwater zones. Establishing a sustainable groundwater management method to explore this vital resource better necessitates the delineation of prospective groundwater zones.
Groundwater is getting more attention because of drought problems, rural water plans, irrigation projects, and other socioeconomic developments. Yet groundwater studies are riskier regardless of the extensive research and technological progress in the field, as there is no advanced method to observe water below the surface. Over the years, the increasing demand for groundwater and its growing value has contributed to the unscientific exploitation of groundwater resulting in stress conditions
