Abstract

Quantitative Analyses of Surface Water and Groundwater Resources around the River Nile, Assiut Governorate, Upper Egypt: Water Quality in Relation to Anthropogenic Activities

Cluster analyses, principal coordinate and R-mode factor analyses are approaches to investigate the relationships among the dissolved constituents and the environmental parameters in water. Clusters analyses, principle component analysis and factor analysis have been advocated as tools that can provide understanding of the geochemistry of the surface water and groundwater. These techniques can provide an unbiased description of the distribution of water samples and the variation with in their compositions. In the case of principal component analysis, it can describe the parameters that explain the variance in the compositions. Maps of chemical variables were created using statically tools by combining observations with interpolation models that can incorporate simple process relations.
