Geo-electrical Investigation in Harir Plain Northeast of Erbil City


A total of 32 sites were investigated along three long cross-Alpine trend traverses in part of the Harir plain north of Iraq. Electrical resistivity method was applied. The main task of this study was to investigate the shallow structural and hydrogeological conditions by analyzing in detail the geo-electric sections, along the taken traverses. A set of NW-SE faults was distinguished. Their effect on the groundwater is discussed. A structural map is drawn for the area of study based on electrical data. Also a geologic cross section along one of the traverses was constructed.
