Abstract

We present the result of a geophysical study at Ras Mohammed national park, south Sinai, Egypt. In this study we recorded eighteen P-wave seismic profiles, and 14 vertical electrical soundings (VESs). Three bore-holes are used as ground truth to constrain the resistivity/seismic inversion. The seismic tomograms and the electric models are used to generate subsurface geological and hydrological models of the area of study. These models are used as a guide to create a better developing plan of the area.
