Water Pollution Literature Review
A National-Scale Vulnerability Assessment of Seawater Intrusion | Geoscience Australia
The report presents a literature review on the status of research related to saltwater intrusion and groundwater management in coastal and deltaic environments in the east coast of South India. The area is typically characterized by highly productive and alluvial aquifers and high use of both surface as well as groundwater. Seawater intrusion into the freshwater aquifers is extensive due to increased pumpages. A quantitative understanding of the patterns of movement and mixing between freshwater and saline water and the factors that influence these processes is stressed in the report.
A review: saltwater intrusion in North Africa's coastal areas-current state and future challenges
Instrumentation to measure physico-chemical properties in the groundwater of the upper intertidal zone. Fresh groundwater stored in Australian coastal aquifers is an important resource for the natural environment, as well as for urban and rural residential, agricultural and industrial activities. More than 85 per cent of Australians live within 50km of the coast, and for many growing coastal communities, groundwater is often an important water supply.
Seawater intrusion has been an important topic in hydrogeology in China in recent decades. The rapid growth of the population and economy in the coastal regions has been consuming a tremendous amount of groundwater resources and has increased the extent of seawater intrusion. The spatial discrepancy of water resource distribution has caused the studies of seawater intrusion into China to mainly be concentrated on the area around the Bohai Sea in the northern part of China. Great efforts have been made to mitigate the extent of seawater intrusion and to secure more freshwater resources, including building monitoring networks, subsurface barrier and groundwater reservoirs, and artificial infiltration facilities.
