On the representation of subsea aquitards in models of offshore fresh groundwater
Fresh groundwater is widespread globally in offshore aquifers, and is particularly dependent on the properties of offshore aquitards, which inhibit seawater-freshwater mixing thereby allowing offshore freshwater to persist. ...
Terrestrial freshwater lenses: Unexplored subterranean oases
Freshwater lenses are lenticular bodies of fresh (TDS<1000 mg/L) groundwater that develop above more saline groundwater within the same host aquifer due in part to buoyancy. In contrast to the widely studied situation of ...
Coastal aquifers: Scientific advances in the face of global environmental challenges
On the classification of seawater intrusion
Characteristics of active seawater intrusion
The inland migration of seawater in coastal aquifers, known as seawater intrusion (SWI), can be categorised as passive or active, depending on whether the hydraulic gradient slopes downwards towards the sea or the land, ...
Characteristics and causal factors of hysteresis in the hydrodynamics of a large floodplain system: Poyang Lake (China)
A previous modeling study of the lake-floodplain system of Poyang Lake (China) revealed complex hysteretic relationships between stage, storage volume and surface area. However, only hypothetical causal factors were ...
Science, society, and the coastal groundwater squeeze
Coastal zones encompass the complex interface between land and sea. Understanding how water and solutes move within and across this interface is essential for managing resources for society. The increasingly dense human ...
