Geochemical Aspects of Seawater Intrusion into the Mediterranean Coastal Aquifer

Amos Russak, Boaz Lazar, Orit Sivan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers has been observed and discussed for many years. In most cases, seawater intrusion rates were inferred from an increase in salinity (e.g., Acworth and Dasey in Hydrogeol J 11(3):368–377, 2003; Linderfelt and Turner in Hydrol Process 15(13):2631–2653, 2001), or movement of the fresh–saline water interface (FSI) (e.g., Melloul and Zeitoun in Seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers—concepts, methods, and practices. Kluwer Academic Publications, Dordrecht, pp 543–558, 1999).
