Background: This geophysical study has conducted in the plateau of Meknes which presents the median part of Saïs basin, with a total surface of 12Km2.The study focused on the upper aquifer in the right side of the plateau, which presents the reservoir of the Plio-quaternary above the deep layer of the Lias. Objective: The study aimed to recognize the aquifer depth, and to localise the hydro geologically interesting areas. Methods: To meet our objective we have used a geoelectrical method based on Schlumberger vertical sounding, where the distance between the electrodes reaches 1000 meters to detect a resistivity layer in the depth of 113 meters, then after a quantitative interpretation of Vertical Electric Sounding (VES) based on the geological data and dataset of the existing drillings, we came out with an iso-resistivity, iso-paque, and iso-hypse maps which give a clear view and then help to better understand the hydrogeological and geological structure of the region. Results: The results show the existence of four geo electricals levels where the depth of Plio-quaternary layer has found varies between 9 to 19 m, which is recommended as favourable area where the drilling could be carried out and then helping thereby the local population to meet their needs for potable water. Conclusion: These finding support the ability of geoelectrical methods in the hydrological recognition of the underground also to define the vertical succession of the existing aquifers.
Keywords: Basin, Plateau of Meknes, geophysics, Plio-Quaternary, isoresistivite, isopaque.
