Abstract

 Developing trend in SOUTH KHORASAN PROVINCE in recent years in one hand and being located in arid and semi-arid areas on the other hand demands for effective water resource strategies more than ever. One strategy for water resources management is to identify areas with different WATER POTENTIALs so that to allocate them according to their capacity. The goal of this research was the WATER POTENTIAL zonation in SOUTH KHORASAN PROVINCE using effective factors in GROUNDWATER aquifer recharge by the help of fuzzy logic and GIS technics. Sixteen factors were used in 4 groups (geology, hydrology, geography and human) each classified in 5 classes from low to very high potential. Finally 43 basins of the province were classified based on the GROUNDWATER potential maps. The results were then correlated with the data from the exploration wells. The WATER POTENTIAL map of the province was accordingly prepared. The results showed that about 17% (27×103 km2) of the province area have a high or very high WATER POTENTIAL classes that match with the quaternary sediments and areas with high fracture density. Also very low potential class correlate with high areas, hard lithology, and desert areas.
