About this book

This volume covers the theories and practices of sea water intrusion in coastal aquifers. The subjects range from basics, such as the physical background and the mathematical theory, to technologies in geophysical and geochemical survey, monitoring, exploitation and restoration of aquifers, planning and management. For engineers, quantitative tools such as analytical solutions, numerical techniques, and stochastic analysis methodologies are provided. Several numerical codes that include two popular USGS computer programs SHARP and SUTRA, written by the original developers, and other advanced codes, are available for sharp interface and density-dependent transport modeling. Case studies include those of the USA, the Netherlands, Israel, and Egypt.


1. Introduction. 2. Geophysical Investigations. 3. Geochemical Investigations. 4. Exploitation, Restoration and Management. 5. Conceptual and Mathematical Modeling. 6. Analytical Solutions. 7. Steady Interface in Stratified Aquifers of Random Permeability Distribution. 8. USGS SHARP Model. 9. USGS SUTRA Code -- History, Practical Use, and Application in Hawaii. 10. Three-Dimensional Model of Coupled Density-Dependent Flow and Miscible Salt Transport. 11. Modified Eulerian Lagrangian Method for Density Dependent Miscible Transport. 12. Survey of Computer Codes and Case Histories. 13. Seawater Intrusion in the United States. 14. Impact of Sea Level Rise in the Netherlands. 15. Movement of Brackish Groundwater Near a Deep-Well Infiltration System in the Netherlands. 16. A Semi-Empirical Approach to Intrusion Monitoring in Israeli Coastal Aquifer. 17.
