Africa Groundwater Atlas >> Hydrogeology by country

  Lire cette page en français:  Hydrogéologie par pays  Flag of france.png 


The Hydrogeology by country section includes a profile of each country in Africa, with consistent information on the geology and hydrogeology of key aquifers; the status of groundwater resources and management; and supporting information such as climate, hydrology, soils and land cover. Links and/or references to additional information are provided where possible.

Within an overall consistent structure, there are differences in individual country profiles in the type and amount of hydrogeological information available for each country; and in the way that geology and hydrogeology are described, because of national differences in geological and hydrogeological nomenclature.

The country profiles have been prepared by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in collaboration with groundwater experts in the relevant countries. See details of all the contributing authors.

A few of the country profiles are still 'skeleton' pages, with minimal information. If you have information on the hydrogeology and groundwater resources of these countries that would improve these pages, we would love to hear from you - please get in touch at AfricaGWAtlas@bgs.ac.uk.
