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
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 groundwater.
