Method of Analysis

A three-dimensional numerical model, namely SEAWAT Version 4 [6] which is capable of simulating variable-density, saturated groundwater flow and multi-species transport in three-dimensions is used to simulate groundwater flow and solute transport in the hypothetical aquifer system.

The model developed is further utilized to assess the long term affects of decreasing recharge rates on the groundwater reserves, groundwater budgets and the saltwater intrusion rate in lateral and vertical directions. The outcomes of the model are used to assess the future sustainability of groundwater, considering both the quantity and the quality of the resource.
