The main objective of this research know is to evaluate the ability remote sensing
techniques to detect ground water in the study area.To achieve this goal, American
satellite imagery (Landsat-7) was used to cover the study area.
And use of the digital image processor program (ERDAS IMAGINE)(Earth
Resources Data Analysis System)in order to improve aerial image and the signature
of the real coordinates of the area and classified according to the nature of the region,
then analyze this image by comparing them with geophysical methods used to identify
groundwater wells.
This analysis of the ability of remote sensing techniques and digital image processing
has proven to identify groundwater sites depending on the study and classification of
the surface crust covering the area, which provides an effective tool for exploring
