This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the theories and practi ces of sea water intrusion in coastal aquifers, written by a select gr oup of more than two dozen international experts. The subjects range f rom the fundamentals such as the physical background and the mathemati cal theory, to the newest 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 c omputer programs SHARP and SUTRA, written by the original developers, and other advanced codes, are available for sharp interface and densit y-dependent transport modeling. Case studies include those of the USA, the Netherlands, Israel, and Egypt.
