5.1 Simulation results and statistical analysis of salt wedge
Aquifer flow configuration and statistical inputs We consider steady flow in a heterogeneous unconfined coastal aquifer in a square domain (1 km ×
1 km). The mean freshwater flow is directed along the x axis. We apply constant head boundary
conditions (Dirichlet) on boundaries orthogonal to mean flow: ZSEA=30 m (seawater level) and
H1 = 31 m (freshwater inland). The hydraulic gradient, directed along (x), is 0.001 m/m, a typical
value for regional flow in coastal regions. Lateral boundaries orthogonal to seashore are assumed
impervious. Other statistical-geometric parameters concerning the planar grid and the random logpermeability field lnK (x,y) are shown in Table 1. Modélisation stochastique de l'intrusion saline en 2D plan 61 Table 1 Summary of statistical parameters for two sets of simulations (small and large)
