The Jordan Valley and the area of the Dead Sea are a closed drainage base for numerous aquifers and water bodies of diverse ages and of different chemical and isotopic compositions. The elucidation of the relationships between these water bodies, of interaquifer flow and of salinization processes is a necessary step for the rational management of these waters and of primary importance for the further development of water resources in an area with an ever increasing population and expanding agriculture.
