Abstract

Shiramin plain, which is located in the East Azarbaijan with an area of about 50 Km2, is important in terms of agriculture activity. The main source of water supply for agriculture of the area is groundwater resources. This research studies the Shiramin plain groundwater salinity and offers a solution for the decrease of salinity. Based on analyzed water samples which were compared with the old ones, the areas of high electric conductivity, thickness of saturated layers and uncommen waters have been determined.
