Abstract

The freshwater of the Judea Group aquifer that recharges on the crest of the Judea and Samria Mountain ridge flows east and west, defining two groundwater basins. At the foothills of both basins the freshwater encounters ancient saline or brackish water. The mode of interaction between the two water bodies within each basin is different, although both eventually discharge as brackish spring system. We describe these systems and identify the source of the higher salinity end members.
