A good fit was obtained when comparing theoretical vs computed spatial autocorrelation function of lnK(x,y) for the gaussian covariance with σlnK = 1 on a 1000 × 1000 grid. Smaller 300 300 fields were then extracted from the center of the domain, and single replicate simulations of seawater intrusion were conducted, with variability ranging from σlnK = 1 to ln10. In order to increase numerical accuracy, we used an iterative continuation method (or homotopy method) with respect to the σ parameter, where σ is the standard deviati...
