Unformatted text preview: y) coincides with the free surface elevation, i.e. :
H(x,y)≈ZS(x,y). In this 2D framework, all variables and parameters are spatially distributed in (x,y).
A schematic representation of the coastal aquifer and its salt wedge is shown in Fig. 1.
We assume that seawater and freshwater are separated by a sharp interface. More precisely, we
rely on the Ghyben-Herzberg approximation(s), that is:
• the seawater and freshwater fluids are assumed immiscible (sharp interface);
• the subsurface seawater wedge is assumed quasi-hydrostatic;
• the freshwater is assumed vertically hydrostatic (negligible vertical velocities). Modélisation stochastique de l'intrusion saline en 2D plan 59 Fig. 1 Schematic view of seawater intrusion (sea level ZSEA shown at right) into a free surface aquifer (shown at left),
with saltwater interface ZSALT(x,y) and substratum ZINF(x,y) Now, let ZSALT(x,y) be the elevation of the salt/fresh water interface. Applying the hydrostatic
assumptions and the pressure continuity condition at the inte...
