An Efficient Computer Program for Modeling Seawater Intrusion in Coastal Aquifers


PI: Mark Bakker (formerly - Dept of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Univ of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA)

Support: GA DNR Coastal Zone Management (through a Coastal Incentive Grant)

Timeframe: 2001 - ongoing

Project Overview:
A new computer program that can be used to model seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers accurately and efficiently is being developed. The computer program is based on a new theory that has been developed, tested, and published in the past 5 years. It will be written as a separate package to an existing computer program named MODFLOW.  MODFLOW was developed by the USGS and is the most-used computer program for groundwater modeling.


Accomplishments:
The MODFLOW 'SWI' package for Sea Water Intrusion is public domain and is freely available to any interested party.
