This paper presents the results of an investigation into numerical modelling and control of seawater intrusion. A coupled transient density-dependent finite element model has been used for modelling of seawater intrusion. Also, a new costeffective method is presented for effective control of seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers. This methodology ADR (Abstraction, Desalination and Recharge) includes abstraction of saline water, desalination and recharge of a part of the excess desalinated… Expand

INVESTIGATION OF SOME POTENTIAL PARAMETERS AND ITS IMPACTS ON SALTWATER INTRUSION IN NILE DELTA AQUIFER
Coastal aquifers represent an important source of freshwater in arid and semi-arid regions. Theincreased extraction from coastal aquifers decreases the freshwater spilled out to the sea.Consequently,Expand
Fate and Transport of Subsurface Pollutants
The high demand for fuel derived from oil increases the risk of environmental hazard as a consequence of overturning of trains, tractors, and trucks during transport and spotting of fuel on theExpand
The regular pattern and underlying mechanisms of seawater intrusion in the Modaomen channel in the Pearl River Estuary of China
TLDR
Analysis of time series of water salinity data, river discharges, tides, and wind records for the period 2003–2015 suggests that river discharge plays a dominant role in governing seawater intrusion. Expand
