    The U.S. Geological Survey, together with Afghan scientists, developed a regional ground­ water flow model to assist with water resource planning in the Kabul Basin. Afghan scientists are now independently developing the datasets and conducting studies needed to assess water resources in other population centers of Afghanistan.   At a conference held in Kabul in , participants informed that the ground water levels in the Kabul basin had decreased by about 10 meters by that year, compared to the s. In Kabul’s Shahr-e Naw, ground water was found 1 to 3 meters deep, while it .

    Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan, is located at an altitude of about 1, m above sea level. Low annual precipitation of mm with a decreasing tendency and low humidity especially during the summer months dominate the climatic conditions. The residents of Kabul have experienced civil war and devastation in recent decades. Since.   More than 7 million people in Afghanistan, equivalent to 23 percent of the Afghan population, live in the Kabul River Basin (KRB). The main source of the Kabul River is from the glaciers and snow of the Hindu Kush mountains, which are a part of the Himalayas-Pamir (Vick, ).

    The four Quaternary and Neocene sediment aquifer systems within the Kabul Basin (Upper Kabul River Aquifer, Paghman River Aquifer, Lower Kabul River Aquifer, and the Logar River Aquifer) are described elsewhere in this book (see Chapter 4). Jalahabad Basin. The Jalalabad Basin is situated in the southern part of the Nangrahar Province. The trans-boundary Amu River Basin (ARB), which is shared among Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, is a primary source for human population and ecosystem. Future water demand in Afghanistan is likely to increase due to ambitious development plans after long-term unrest in the country. In accordance with high water abstraction in the Afghan part of ARB and its.

Chornack and presents hydrographs of the water-level data for each well in the monitoring network. Acknowledgments. Water levels were monitored in 69 wells in the Kabul Basin, Afghanistan, starting in July and continuing through March The monitoring network is composed of existing water-supply wells; therefore, both static and dynamic water levels were recorded.

Very little information is available about the construction or completion of the wells, and there are no geologic logs for the wells. Abstract.
