Seawater Intrusion in a Coastal Aquifer

Application ID: 119121

Seawater intrusion is a critical issue in coastal regions, where it endangers both freshwater supplies and the overall quality of groundwater.

This example showcases seawater intrusion in a coastal aquifer where a pumping well is located at some distance from the shoreline.

The model incorporates a dual porosity approach in order to account for the distinctive condition where a low-conductivity aquifer intersects with highly conductive "lava tubes".

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
