Large scale modeling of seawater intrusion in a coastal aquifer: application to the North Sharon and Heffer Valley areas, Israel.

Jacob Bensabat, Jacob Bear, Zhou Quanlin & Jacob Bensabat
Seawater intrusion, in the form of a wide transition zone from fresh water to seawater, is a well-known phenomenon occurring in most coastal aquifers, as a result of unbalanced freshwater extraction practices. The prediction of seawater intrusion resulting from planned water extraction scenarios is of crucial importance as it allows maximization of freshwater sustainable extraction, while preserving the coastal aquifer's viability by minimizing adverse salinization processes. Seawater intrusion can be monitored by observation wells. However,...
