Interference between sea water and groundwater
Shadia Said Ali Krair
Saltwater intrusion occurs naturally in coastal aquifers. It is the saline water movement into freshwater aquifers, leading to degradation of groundwater quality, including impairment of sources of drinking water, including other nasty consequences. The intrusion of saltwater occurs due to the seawater and groundwater hydraulic connection. This review paper explores the research study made, several academic work conducted in the past to understand the concept, cause and effects of freshwater Salinization due to sea water intrusion in groundwater and whether there are any ways to mitigate these effects.
