Abstract

A geophysical study based on 49 electric holes with a long line length (up to 4 km) was carried out in the southwestern part of the plateau of Meknès (Morocco). This is located between the Rif to the north and the Middle Atlas to the south. The plateau of Meknes contains two main aquifer formations: the groundwater of the Plio-Quaternary and the deep layer of the Lias. The quantitative interpretation of the electric soundings, the geological data and the description of the drillings made it possible to draw isoresistivity and isopaque maps. These maps helped to better understand the hydrogeological structure of the region from a quantitative and qualitative point of view.
