  • Application of the comprehensive identification model in analyzing the
           source of water inrush
    • Authors: Qin Liu; Yajun Sun; Zhimin Xu; Gang Xu
      Abstract: Disasters caused by water inrush during production affect many coal mines in China. To rapidly and accurately prevent further water inrush, a comprehensive identification model combining hydrochemistry analysis, water source detection, and water channel exploration is proposed. The Schukalev classification method (SCM) is used to distinguish the concentration distribution of the main ion between the water inrush source and other aquifers, and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) is adopted to classify the water samples in the hydrochemistry analysis stage. Water channel exploration and water source detection are combined to test and verify the conclusion in the third stage. The comprehensive discrimination model is applied to the water inrush of the Buliangou coal mine. Hydrochemistry analysis shows that the percentages of the main ions (Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+, HCO3−, and Cl−) are greater than 30% (excluding SO42−), which is in agreement with the case of a sandstone aquifer. In the second stage, water source detection based on the transient electromagnetic method (TEM) and drilling technique indicates that not much water is present in the anomaly area around the water inrush location. The limited water recharge contradicts the phenomenon of water inrush. Water channel exploration is carried out, and an area with massive fissures that have water storage capacity is revealed. The conclusion is that the water conserved in the fissures flows out over a short time without the occurrence of stable recharge. The comprehensive discrimination model has complementary advantages and improves the water inrush prediction efficiency.

  • Bioerosion and encrustation rates in recent mollusk death assemblages on a
           supratidal siliciclastic setting, Playa Norte, Veracruz State, Mexico
    • Authors: Catalina Gómez-Espinosa; F. Raúl Gío-Argáez; Ester A. Farinati; Salvador Aliotta; Sergio Adrian Salgado-Souto
      Abstract: This study presents both qualitative and quantitative data regarding marine mollusk (gastropods and bivalves) shell bioerosion and encrustation based on death assemblages obtained from a recent supratidal environment in Playa Norte, Veracruz State. The objectives of this study were to assess the nature of bioerosion and encrustation processes and to investigate the role of these taphonomic features contributing to the deterioration of natural shell accumulations within a tropical siliciclastic tidal environment. The assemblage comprises 31 species: 13 gastropods and 18 bivalves. The bioerosion and encrustation degrees were low to moderate for both types. The most abundant traces were predatory gastropod structures (Oichnus paraboloides and O. simplex), whereas sponge borings (Entobia isp.), polychaete dwellings (Caulostrepsis taeniola), and echinoid raspings (Gnatichnus isp.) were less frequent. The encrusting organisms include polychaete serpulids, bryozoans, and rare foraminifers (Homotrema rubrum). Because of the low bioerosion and encrustation degrees occurring in this area, accumulation is expected to predominate over biotic destruction. As deposition conditions (richly fossiliferous carbonate sandstone beds) were similar to those prevailing in the Tuxpan Formation during the Miocene (Langhian), it is suggested that this study provides an equivalent reference to interpret mollusk fossil assemblages located in this site.

  • Groundwater potential mapping by combining fuzzy-analytic hierarchy
           process and GIS in Beyşehir Lake Basin, Turkey
    • Authors: Erhan Şener; Şehnaz Şener; Ayşen Davraz
      Abstract: Delineation of the groundwater potential zones is one of the most essential process for the sustainable management of the groundwater sources. However, groundwater studies are quite hard and complex for many regions besides consuming time and cost. This study focused on the groundwater potential mapping in Beyşehir Lake Basin. Mainly, fuzzy-analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy-AHP) integrated with GIS was used to determine potential zones for groundwater. Seven parameters, namely lithology, lineament, drainage density, land use, slope, soil type, and rainfall were evaluated and Groundwater Potential Index (GWPI) was calculated using weight and rating coefficients of each parameter. According to obtained results, GWPI varies from 0.07665 to 0.28243 in the basin. The low, moderate, and high groundwater potential classes were determined with quantile classification method. The groundwater potential map demonstrates that the high groundwater potential area is located around the lake shore, in the alluvium and limestone fields because high permeability rates depend on soil type, low slope, karstic structure, and agricultural activities in these regions. In addition, the distribution of the springs confirms with groundwater potential area determined with this study.

  • The Ediacaran volcanosedimentary succession of Gabal Abu Had, North
           Eastern Desert, Egypt: geological study, facies analyses, and depositional
    • Authors: Khaled El-Gameel
      Abstract: Gabal Abu Had is an exposure of a volcanosedimentary succession in the North Eastern Desert Basement Complex. This succession includes intercalation of two major rock units, which are Dokhan Volcanics and Hammamat Group with different styles of formation, deposition environments, and genesis. Gabal Abu Had succession (GHS) is a northward dipping, c. 700-m-thick volcanosedimentary succession that rests on metavolcanic and old granitoid rocks with erosion unconformity. The lower part of GHS is dominated by volcaniclastic mass flow deposits and andesitic lava with interbedded gravely sandstone, whereas the upper sequence is composed of pyroclastic flow deposits including welded to no welded ignimbrite intercalated with gravely sandstone and massive clast-support conglomerate toward the top. Facies analysis study of GHS presented eight lithofacies types, which grouped into five lithofacies associations. The GHS basin started with effusive eruption of silica-poor volcanic center, which produced andesitic lava. A part of lava underwent hyaloclastic fragmentation due to the presence of fluvial water in places producing the volcaniclastic mass flow deposits. Later, an explosive silica-rich volcanic center affected the GHS basin and created the pyroclastic plain deposits (ignimbrite and bedded tuff). The fluvial braided river is still in action since the first eruption, producing gravely sandstone, which is intercalated with the volcanic sequence. The upper GHS is characterized by thick, massive, and clast-supported conglomerate (well rounded clasts up to 100 cm) of alluvial fan facies. Several silica-rich and silica-poor subvolcanic intrusions were emplaced in the GHS. The GHS development displays a cycle from low- to high-energy sedimentation under humid climatic conditions, in addition to extension and down faulting of basin shoulders. In comparison with Gabal El Urf, located to the north of GHS and was studied by El-Gameel (2010), the GHS is a lava-rich succession rather than Gabal El Urf succession which is mainly pyroclastic rich.

  • Evaluation of urban heat island effect in Turkey
    • Authors: Mustafa Dihkan; Fevzi Karsli; Nilgun Guneroglu; Abdulaziz Guneroglu
      Abstract: Recently, the rate of urbanisation has accelerated due to increasing population density which causes unexpected environmental disturbances and problems. One of the major problems encountered to date is the change in the land use/cover (LULC) structure. Increasing the impervious surface cover has changed microclimatic properties of urbanised areas by altering their thermal characteristics. One of the most important problems facing urban planning today is the phenomena known as the urban heat island (UHI), which is largely due to the changing the character of LULC. In this study, to create a national picture of the UHI structure in Turkey, seven cities, namely Istanbul, Bursa, Ankara, Izmir, Gaziantep, Erzurum and Trabzon, each located in different climatic regions of Turkey, were investigated. The Gaussian fitting technique was applied to characterise the UHI effect in the seven cities in the study. An original contribution of the current study was that the rural reference temperature surface was automatically determined by a proposed algorithm including the automatic masking of input data, as well as the application of iterative Gaussian low-pass filtering during the fitting procedure. Within this context, the daytime and nighttime surface urban heat island (SUHI) effect was modelled and temporally analysed from 1984 to 2011 for all the sub-regions using remote sensing techniques. Furthermore, atmospheric UHI was also investigated using the mobile transect method. The findings from this study suggest that UHI is a major environmental problem in urbanised areas, both atmospheric UHI and SUHI were detected in all cities in the study area, and this problem was found to have rapidly increased from 1984 to 2011. Finally, as inferred from the multiple regression results, it can be concluded that the UHI problem in Turkey might have resulted from the altered LULC structure, as well as anthropogenic pressure on and interference in city planning geometries.

  • Study of the water saving potential of an irrigation area based on a
           remote sensing evapotranspiration model
    • Authors: Qiang Fu; Wei Liu; Tianxiao Li; Dong Liu; Song Cui
      Abstract: To estimate the water saving potential of an irrigation area and create a scientific water saving plan, the irrigation water use efficiency and water productivity of the Hulanhe irrigation area for 2007–2014 were calculated, and the water saving potentials of different water saving plans were determined from the perspectives of engineering and crop water saving. The results showed that the evapotranspiration calculated from the surface energy balance algorithm for land model (SEBAL) agreed well with the measured results. The irrigation water use efficiency in the Hulanhe irrigation area was positively correlated with precipitation of irrigated land and was negatively correlated with the net irrigation water volume. The engineering water saving potential ranges for periods of 5, 8, 11, and 15 years were (1.702 × 108, 5.103 × 108) m3, (1.783 × 108, 5.184 × 108) m3, (1.865 × 108, 5.266 × 108) m3, and (2.301 × 108, 5.702 × 108) m3, respectively, and the water saving potential increased year over year. Low amounts of precipitation of irrigated land corresponded with small amounts of net irrigation water and greater water saving potential. Based on the cumulative frequency of the water productivity calculated for the Hulanhe irrigation area from 2007 to 2014, the target water productivity for short (50% of the multi-year average cumulative water productivity) and long (70% of the multi-year average cumulative water productivity) terms were 1.03 kg/m3 and 1.22 kg/m3, respectively, and the cumulative crop water saving potentials for short and long terms were 1.18 × 108 and 2.74 × 108 m3, respectively. These results provided a theoretical reference for creating water saving plans for irrigation areas.

  • The oceanic anoxic event 2 at Es Souabaa (Tebessa, NE Algeria): bio-events
           and stable isotope study
    • Authors: Sihem Salmi-Laouar; Bruno Ferré; Khoudair Chaabane; Rabah Laouar; Adrian J. Boyce; Anthony E. Fallick
      Abstract: At the southern margin of the Tethys, the Es Souabaa area recorded traces of Oceanic Anoxic Event 2 (OAE2) around the Cenomanian-Turonian boundary (C/Tb). The dark, laminated, filament- and pyrite-bearing limestones represent the typical facies of this event. In terms of sedimentary environment, these features reflect a transgressive drowning that had induced hypoxia in these sedimentary environments. Such conditions favored the deposition and preservation of organic matter of marine origin, the distribution of which was controlled by paleogeography and halokinetic tectonics at that period. The OAE2 reached a climax between the last upper Cenomanian occurrence of Rotalipora cushmani and the lower Turonian occurrence of Whiteinella praehelvetica. Positive shift of the δ13C excursion along with relatively high total organic carbon (TOC) contents during OAE2 both indicate palaeo-environmental modifications enhanced by a significant change in primary marine productivity. Meanwhile, negative δ18O peaks in carbonates reflect increasing temperatures. Comparison of the data from this study with those from the neighboring Kalaat Senan section (Tunisia) suggests close similarities of events, although OAE2 is much more enhanced in Algeria.

  • Evaporation, shrinkage and intrinsic permeability of unsaturated clayey
           soil: analytical modelling versus experimental data
    • Authors: Houcem Trabelsi; Bilel Hadrich; Houda Guiras
      Abstract: This paper presents the experimental study conducted on a clayey soil originating from the region of Béja, north-west of Tunisia. The evaporation, shrinkage and permeability behaviours were studied. The Soil Water Retention Curve (SWRC) was determined from the slurry state to dry state, under the desiccation path (called initial drying curve). The Crack Intensity Factor (CIF), settlement and void ratio were also studied to characterise the shrinkage phenomenon during desiccation. Moisture content (ω), saturation degree (Sr) and evaporation rate (Re) evolutions during desiccation path were also presented. This type of slurry clay presents three stages during the desiccation process (pendular, funicular and capillary regimes). During desiccation process, the evaporation rate presents a linear relationship as a saturation degree function. Furthermore, the evaporation rate versus suction presents two phases: quasi-saturated and unsaturated states. This paper introduces a study of the hygroscopic and mechanical parameters naturally modified during a desiccation process and proposes some analytical models to describe clay behaviour. Using these parameters, we can determine the intrinsic permeability during the desiccation process.

    • Authors: Abhishek Ghosh; Sutapa Mukhopadhyay
      Abstract: In the initial online publication of this article the functional relationship between vulnerability and recovery day has been typed as “inverse” in the Table 1 column four and row thirteen which should be replaced as “direct” because more recovery day shows lack of proper adaptive capacity and therefore it is positively related with misery and sufferings and vice – versa.

  • Experimental study of the mechanical properties of expansive soil with
           added nanomaterials
    • Authors: Yanliang Shang; Yingchun Fu
      Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to describe ways to improve the microstructure of expansive soil by adding nanomaterials. Mechanical tests were done to explore the changes in shear strength and compression index of expansive soil that was modified by adding different amounts of two kinds of nanomaterials (nano-alumina and nano-silica). The test results show that adding 1.2% nano-alumina and about 2% nano-silica to expansive soil provides the optimal compression index. The test results show that adding 1.2% nano-alumina and about 1.5% nano-silica to expansive soil provides the optimal unconfined compression stress. Scanning electron microscopy of the microstructure of expansive soil modified by nanomaterials provided a deeper understanding of the effects of nanomaterials on improving expansive soil.

  • Climate change impact projections at the catchment scale in Tunisia using
           the multi-model ensemble mean approach
    • Authors: Sihem Moussa; Haykel Sellami; Ammar Mlayh
      Abstract: In this work, we developed a mean projection for climate change and assessed its impact on some hydro-meteorological indicators relevant to climatic condition, precipitation extremes magnitude and frequency for the Siliana catchment in Tunisia based on an ensemble of seven combinations of global circulation models (GCMs) and regional climate models (RCMs) derived from the EU-FP6 ENSEMBLES project. We performed quantile-based mapping (QM) bias correction technique of climate model projection using local observations. Because there is no warranty that the best climate model based on its performances in reproducing historic climate will be superior to other models in simulating future climate, we used the multi-model ensemble (MME) mean approach to derive a mean projection as the best guess for climate change projection for the Siliana catchment. We also quantified the uncertainty of the MME in the projected change in the selected indicators by comparing their values in the reference period (1981–2010) to these in the future period (2041–2070). Results reveal that the Siliana catchment will be prone to drier and warmer climate in the future with less rainy days for each month. The uncertainty associated with the MME projection suggests that no clear general tendency for extreme rainy days in the future is expected. These findings highlight the need to consider an ensemble of multi-climate models with an uncertainty framework if reliable climate change impact study is sought at the catchment scale.

  • Usefulness of electrical and magnetic methods in finding buried structure
           of the Alabanda Ancient Cistern in Çine Town, Aydın City, Turkey
    • Authors: Hasan Karaaslan; Can Karavul
      Abstract: In this paper, the Electrical Resistivity Tomography and magnetic methods, including Tilt Angle and Euler Deconvolution, have been used in a comperative manner to determine the lineaments and depths of buried archeological structures. The zero contours of the tilt angle correspond to the boundaries of buried structures and the half distance between ±π/4 rad corresponds to the depth to the top of the structures. Also, in order to estimate the positions and depths of buried structures in the study area, the Euler Deconvolution method was applied to the total magnetic field data. All of the methods have a good correlation about determination of the horizontal locations and depths of the buried structures. The archeological excavations based on the geophysical investigations have demonstrated that the buried structure is an ancient cistern building because of the unearthed pools. Therefore, the interpretations of the geophysical methods and fiction of the paper were made according to the ancient cistern building. With this study, a buried ancient cistern structure was modeled and revealed by the geophysical methods for the first time. Additionally, using of these geophysical techniques in a comparative manner for the archaeogeophysical work will greatly contribute to future studies.

  • Spatial and temporal variability of rainfall: case of Bizerte-Ichkeul
           Basin (Northern Tunisia)
    • Authors: Hiba Jemai; Manel Ellouze; Habib Abida; Benoit Laignel
      Abstract: This study examines spatial and temporal variability of rainfall in Bizerte-Ichkeul Watershed. The basin, located in the extreme north of Tunisia, covers an area of 3084 km2. Thirteen rainfall stations, with continuous monthly precipitation records over the period (1970–2011), were considered in the analysis. Two methods were used. In the first, the dimensionless standardized precipitation ratio is applied to examine precipitation temporal variation. The second method is represented by continuous wavelet analysis for the precipitation spatial analysis and the identification of the origin of its variability. The study of temporal variability of annual rainfall showed severe persistent and recurrent drought episodes over the period (1977–2001). Wavelet analysis resulted in detecting the modes and origins of precipitation variability. Three energy bands were clearly identified: (1, 2–4, and 4–8 years) for the entire watershed. The visualization of the power distribution showed that the observed modes of variability are different in their power distributions from one station to another. The approach adopted allowed the identification of two groups with the same precipitation frequency and temporal variation. These groups were defined according to the difference in occurrence of the frequency band for each station.

  • Supervised committee fuzzy logic model to assess groundwater intrinsic
           vulnerability in multiple aquifer systems
    • Authors: Dara Faeq Hamamin; Ata Allah Nadiri
      Abstract: Groundwater vulnerability modeling is an alternative approach to evaluate groundwater contamination especially in areas affected by intensive anthropogenic activities. However, the DRASTIC model as a well-known method to assess groundwater vulnerability suffers from the inherent uncertainty associated with its seven essential parameters. In this study, three different fuzzy logic (FL) models (Sugeno fuzzy logic, Mamdani fuzzy logic, and Larsen fuzzy logic) are adopted to improve the DRASTIC system to be more realistic. The vulnerability map of groundwater from multiple aquifer systems (i.e., karstic, alluvium, and complex) in Basara basin, Iraq, was created using the FL models. Validation of the FL models results using NO3-N concentration obtained from wells and springs of the study area indicating that all of the three FL models are applicable for improving the DRASTIC model. However, each of the FL models has its own advantages for groundwater vulnerability estimation in different types of aquifer systems in the Basara basin. Therefore, this study proposes the supervised committee fuzzy logic (SCFL) as a multimodel method to combine the advantages of individual FL models. The SCFL method confirms that no water well with high NO3-N levels would be classified as low risk and vice versa. The study suggests that this approach has provided a convenient estimation of pollution risk in the study area and therefore, a more accurate prediction of the intrinsic vulnerability to pollution in the multiple aquifer system can be achieved through SCFL method.

  • The measurement of soil gases and shallow temperature for determination of
           active faults in a geothermal area: a case study from Ömer–Gecek,
           Afyonkarahisar (West Anatolia)
    • Authors: Ahmet Yıldız; Can Başaran; Metin Bağcı; Ayla Gümüş; Feyzullah Ekrem Çonkar; Yusuf Ulutürk; Hüseyin Ali Yalım
      Abstract: Afyonkarahisar is a very important geothermal province of western Anatolia and has low and medium enthalpy geothermal areas. This study has been carried out for the preparation of distribution maps of soil gases (radon and carbon dioxide) and shallow soil temperature and the exploration of permeable tectonic regions associated with geothermal systems and reveal the origins of radon and carbon dioxide gases. The western district of the study area is characterized by the high radon concentration (168.30 kBq/m3), carbon dioxide ratio (0.30%), and soil temperature (21.0 °C) values. Fethibey and Demirçevre faults, which allow the circulation of geothermal fluids, have been detected in the distribution maps of radon, carbon dioxide, and shallow depth temperature and the directions of the curves in these maps correspond to the strikes of Demirçevre faults. The effect of the fault plays an important role in the change of carbon dioxide concentration along the W-E directional geological section prepared to determine the change of soil gas and shallow depth temperature values depending on lithological differences, fault existence, and geothermal reservoir depth. On the other hand, it was determined that Rn222 concentration and soil temperature changed as a function of geothermal reservoir depth or lithological difference. Tuffs in Köprülü volcano-sedimentary units are the main source of radon due to their higher uranium contents. Besides, the carbon dioxide in Ömer–Gecek soils has geothermal origin because of the highest carbon dioxide content (99.3%) in non-condense gas. The similarities in patterns of soil temperature, radon, and carbon dioxide indicate that the variation in soil temperatures is related to radon and carbon dioxide emissions. It is concluded that soil gas and temperature measurements can be used to determine the active faults in the initial stage of geothermal exploration successfully.

  • Quantification of groundwater recharge and river bed clogging by daily
           water level measurements in a check dam
    • Authors: S. Parimalarenganayaki; L. Elango
      Abstract: Check dams are one of the methods of managed aquifer recharge to augment groundwater storage in regions with non-perennial rivers. The objectives of this study were to quantify the groundwater recharge from a check dam in the Arani River, north of Chennai, India, and to assess the clogging of the riverbed. The water level in the check dam was measured daily for 3 years from 2010 to 2013. Other field investigations carried out include measurement of the topographic elevation of the riverbed using the differential global positioning system. Based on the water balance method, the quantity of water evaporated and recharged was estimated. A comparison of 3-year daily water level measurements indicated that there is no clogging in the riverbed during the study period, as this check dam is fitted with a sluice gate which is operated at appropriate times to flush out the sediments.

  • Determining the hard rock groundwater pathway in Golgohar complex
           formation using hydrochemical data in AHP
    • Authors: Saeid Maknouni; Mohammad Zare; Ezzatollah Raeisi
      Abstract: Thirty percent of present industrial water consumption of the Golgohar Iron Ore Mine (GIOM) is supplied from a hard rock well (PW-A15) and the rest from 25 wells located in 4 disconnected alluvial aquifers. This well is drilled in the metamorphic complex of Golgohar formation. Attempts have been made to develop extraction of water from other hard rocks existing in the area with no success. Therefore, extensive researches have been carried out to find the pathway, or a provision pathway of water discharged from this well. To study the hydrochemical similarity of this water with other water resources, 122 water samples from an area of 7132 km2 were collected from the existing pumping wells, piezometers, mine exploration bore holes, and three salt pans in the vicinity of the area for hydrochemical analysis. The analyses were performed for concentration of major ions and some minor elements. Furthermore, the spatial distribution of ion concentration was plotted in the GIS to delineate the similarity of the PW-A15 water with other water sources and their hydrochemical neighborhood by analytical hierarchy process (AHP). The AHP was performed in two steps: first, iso-concentration maps of seven major ions, eight minor elements, and TDS were used to produce an AHP map (Map1) using weights for different hydrochemical parameters; and second, a similarity index (SI) map was prepared by performing a suggested clustering approach in SPSS using K-means clustering, which was overlaid on Map1 producing Map2. The result of AHP Map2 was then overlaid on the iso-potential map of the sampled locations in GIS software using a mask operator. Therefore, the zones having the most similarity and higher hydraulic potential than PW-A15 were nominated as the zones which possibly could recharge this well, and the groundwater (GW) pathway was proposed. The result of the study method showed to be successful and will be used as a guide for future exploration drillings.

  • Exploring the potential of location-based social networks data as proxy
           variables in collective human mobility prediction models
    • Authors: Omid Reza Abbasi; Ali Asghar Alesheikh
      Abstract: The study of human mobility has gained much attention in recent years. To date, various models have been developed to predict human mobility patterns for intra- and/or inter-city cases. These models incorporate the populations as proxy variables in the place of real variables which cannot be observed easily. However, inaccuracies in predicting human mobility within cities are usually encountered. One source of inaccuracies in intra-city scenarios arises from the fact that cities’ populations are influenced by people from other areas. Therefore, population cannot be regarded as a good proxy variable for movement modeling. The objectives of this article are to introduce new proxy variables for use in current models for predicting human mobility patterns within cities, and to evaluate the accuracy of the predictions. In this study, we have introduced new proxy variables, namely, venues and check-ins, extracted from location-based social networks (LBSNs). In order to evaluate the models, we have compared our results with empirical data obtained from taxi vehicles, based on trip distances and destination population distributions. The Sørensen similarity index (SSI) and R-squared measures were also used to compare the performances of models using each variable. The results show that all models with LBSN variables can capture real human movements better within Manhattan, New York City. Our analytical results indicated that the predicted trips using LBSN data are more similar to the real trips, on average, by about 20% based on the SSI. Moreover, the R-squared measures obtained from regression analyses were enhanced significantly.

  • Evaluation of Sentinel-1 data for flood mapping in the upstream of Sidi
           Salem dam (Northern Tunisia)
    • Authors: Ahmed Ezzine; Fadila Darragi; Hamadi Rajhi; Anis Ghatassi
      Abstract: Flood mapping is a powerful asset that allows drawing better strategies to contain possible economic repercussions and to rescue the affected population. This work is directly unfolded after the rainfall events that occurred in the north of the country, in February 2015, during which certain cities located in the vicinity of the Tunisian basin of Medjerda were flooded by the overflow of the Medjerda river, causing important damage to the towns of Jendouba and Bou Salem. The present research illustrates the potentiality of Sentinel-1 sensor in detecting flood areas in the upstream of Medjerda river. The Medjerda is the most important river in Tunisia, with an annual water potential reaching 0.8 billion m3. We compared the signature of flood water in vertical transmit and horizontal received (VH) and vertical transmit and vertical received (VV) polarizations of radar data. The study proves that the segregation of land/water areas with a threshold technique is better observed in VH polarization rather than VV polarization.

  • Agglutinated foraminifera from the Campanian-Maastrichtian Kiseiba
           Formation in the Kurkur area, Egypt
    • Authors: Mohamed Youssef; Abdelbaset El-Sorogy
      Abstract: The upper Campanian to upper Maastrichtian sedimentary sequence of the Kiseiba Formation in south Western Desert is sampled and described in two surface sections (Sinn El Kaddab and Wadi Abu Siyal). Forty-four agglutinated foraminiferal species are identified from 42 samples in the studied succession. The benthic foraminiferal assemblages are dominated by agglutinated foraminifera which comprise more than 90% of the assemblage. The agglutinated foraminifera are subdivided into five morphogroups (A, B, C, D, E) according to shell architecture, integrated with the supposed microhabitat and feeding strategy. The foraminiferal assemblage is assigned to mixohaline shallow water environments. These assemblages with Ammoastuta megacribrostomoides and Ammotium bartheli suggest lagoonal environments with considerably reduced salinity in warm climates and high runoff for the late Campanian-Maastrichtian interval.
