The research aimed to better understand the hydrogeology of the alluvial shallow perched aquifers in Wadi el-Ghussein in Tulul al Ashaqif area of the northeast Badia of Jordan.
Water quality is close to the permissible Jordanian and World Health Organization (WHO) standards, and the plot of the chemistry of the sampled water on the Piper diagram led to it’s classification as carbonate water.
