Evaluating Water Quality of Abu Zarag Marsh Using GIS Technique during the Flood Season

This study focuses on the Iraqi marshes, expressly the Abu Zarag marsh situated in the southern city of Al-Nasiriyah, that is deliberate the most meaningful heritage in Iraq. The research is detached into two main parts. The first part involves the judgment of water status parameters in Abu Zarag swamp during the inundation season from December 2018 to April 2019. The parameters involve Temperature, pH, Electrical Conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids, Alkalinity, Total Hardness, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen, Sulfate, and Nitrate. The second part involves equating the water condition parameters of the current period accompanying those of the previous age from 2014 to 2019. The research verdicts are presented utilizing an Arc GIS map. Additionally, the study involves modeling and imitation of flooding all along the study ending using the Arc GIS-Arc Scene program. The results of the research show that the Iraqi marshes, specifically the Abu Zarag marsh, have existed replenished, chief to the recovery of the nature in pertaining to the south Iraq.
