Tide-induced groundwater ﬂuctuation in a coastal leaky conﬁned aquifer system extending under the sea Hailong Li1 and Jiu J. Jiao Department of Earth Sciences, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China Abstract. This paper presents the analytical solution of groundwater response to tidal ﬂuctuation in a coastal multilayer aquifer system. 1. Introduction. Coastal aquifers are fragile in nature, as they constitute a freshwater source which usually lies on top of seawater with a transition zone in between the two water types [].These aquifers are generally in direct contact with seawater, which create an equilibrium state between the freshwater and saltwater, making them complex and fragile in nature and also Cited by: 8. primarily as a result of periodic vertical flow due to tidal fluctuations.

Williams, Ta-Chiang Liu. Both models were subjected to a sinusoidal tidal input. Results, in the form of graphs of amplitude and phase angle vs. position, show excellent agreement between the outputs of the mathematical and electric analog : John A.

Williams and Ta-Chiang Liu. This paper considered the tide-induced head fluctuations in two coastal multi-layered aquifer systems. Model I comprises two semi-permeable layers and a confined aquifer between them. This paper investigates tide-induced groundwater fluctuation and submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) in a leaky inhomogeneous coastal aquifer system with an upper unconfined aquifer, a lower confined aquifer, and an aquitard between them.

The upper left aquifer is formed due to land by: 7. In the past, the coastal leaky aquifer system, including two aquifers and an aquitard between them, was commonly assumed to be homogeneous and of infinite extent in the horizontal. A coastal aquifer may consist of two zones of distinctly different hydraulic properties, with the coastal zone of limited width and the inland zone of infinite width.

The analytical solutions for groundwater level response to tidal fluctuation in such a two-zone aquifer are derived and the underlying physical meanings are by: Abstract. Hydraulic characterization of aquifer systems is of great importance for coastal aquifer management.

The efficiencies of two tide-aquifer interaction models namely, ‘vertical beach without leakage’ and ‘vertical beach with leakage’ were evaluated in this study for characterizing unconfined and confined coastal aquifers using genetic by: 1. Near the coastal areas, the variation of groundwater table is not only affected by the tidal waves, but also affected by the rainfall.

To manage the groundwater in the coastal aquifers, it is, of course, significant to consider these two factors by: 8. The solution to the transient groundwater flow model in a coastal confined aquifer with a sinusoidal fluctuation of the tide shows that the amplitude of groundwater levels is smaller than the tide.

Conceptual model of 2-D groundwater flow in a coastal aquifer bounded by U-shaped coastlines with four zones classified based on interaction behavior of the oceanic and estuarine tidal waves. X – Y is the dimensionless coordinate of x – y normalized with respect to L, which represents the length of ocean shore between the two opposite Cited by: Groundwater response to tidal fluctuation in a two-zone aquifer.

A coastal aquifer may consist of two zones of distinctly different hydraulic properties, with the coastal zone of limited width and the inland zone of infinite width. centrated on the development of mathematical and electric analog models for two non-homogeneous, one-dimensional coastal aquifers, since it is the non-homogeneous condition which is most likely to be encountered in practice.

The two types considered here are a semi-infinite aquifer. The tidal dilatation can be computed from equilibrium tide theory provided that Poisson's ratio is known.

The amplitude of the tidal dilatation produced by the large semidiurnal wave, M 2, is approximately 1 × 10 −8. It is not unusual to have earth‐tide fluctuations in wells corresponding to M 2 with an amplitude of 1 to 2 cm.

Based on Green’s function method and simple coordinate transformation, an analytical solution for groundwater fluctuations in fan-shaped anisotropic aquifer is derived in polar coordinates system which describes how groundwater’s response Cited by: 1.

In this respect, it is important to understand the coastal groundwater dyna- mics under the tidal fluctuation and the seawater intru- sion conditions.

The groundwater dynamics and the seawater in- trusion in coastal aquifers started to attract attentions 98 in the late 19th by: For periodic fluctuations of groundwater in a coastal aquifer in response to tidal oscillations a corollary is that the equilibrium water level far from the sea is equal to the root mean square of.

The influence of hydraulic conductivity heterogeneity on tide-induced head fluctuations is presented for a theoretical coastal confined aquifer.

considered anisotropic tidal unconfined aquifer and developed a new analytical model for describing the water table fluctuations. [4] When the groundwater table of an unconfined coastal aquifer fluctuates in response to the tides, the total weight of the pore water in the unconfined aquifer will vary accordingly.

This will in turn Cited by: 8. Introduction. Analytical studies of tidal effects play an important role in coastal hydrogeology.

For example, Jacob,Nielsen,Li and Chen,and Sun () derived various solutions to describe the tidal groundwater fluctuations in a single coastal confined aquifer under the assumption that the coastline is straight.

Jeng et al. () assumed that the ﬂow in a rigid porous medium is homo-geneous and incompressible. The model was first run to steady state with no tidal fluctuations. Tidal fluctuations were then simulated for 60 days—this simulation time was sufficient for the aquifer system to reach the quasi‐steady state with respect to the water table fluctuations.

Grid discretization tests were performed to ensure that the model solution was by: 1. The problem of current urban groundwater pollution is very serious, which has influenced social development and people’s daily life.

Around the land-sea interface, tide obviously changes nearshore the groundwater flow regime and makes the pollutant migration process become more complex. In the present study, the effect of tide-induced groundwater table fluctuations Cited by: 2.

The model in this study consists of a semiconfined coastal aquifer overlying a sloping impermeable base in the presence of tidal waves. The groundwater flow was represented by a nonlinear Boussinesq equation, which was further solved analytically by converting it into a linearized form using a suitable technique.

Using the tidal response model, the aquifer hydraulic conductivity(K) at these two sites is estimated to be × 10 -3 and × 10 -3 m s -1, respectively. It was also indicated by the inverse modeling that the tidal fluctuations affect the study area up to. While seawater intrusions are widely discussed, the salinization of coastal aquifers via narrow rivers is hardly documented.

[1] A confined coastal aquifer usually extends under the sea for some distance with its submarine outlet covered by a thin layer of sediment with properties dissimilar from the aquifer.

It deals specifically with the response of an aquifer system consisting of two horizontal and semi-infinite,aquifers separated by a semipermeable layer, or aquitard.

Coastal boundaries represent a unique hydrogeologic environment due to the effects of tidal fluctuations and mixing between freshwater and saltwater aquifers.

Field investigations of groundwater quantity and quality within this environment may require data collection from multiple depths and positions relative to the coastal boundary.

Variable-density groundwater models require extensive computational resources, particularly for simulations representing short-term hydrologic variability such as tidal fluctuations.

Saltwater-intrusion models usually neglect tidal. A two-dimensional digital-computer flow model was developed to simulate the Farrington aquifer in the northern part of the Coastal Plain of New Jersey.

The area modeled is much larger. tidal and storm pulse propagation may be a valuable and affordable approach to investigate complex coastal aquifers.
