Saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifer - comparison between the CIP and MOC simulation technique

Nakagawa, K; Momii, K and Berndtsson, Ronny LU (2005) In Environmental Modelling and Assessment 10(4). p.323-329
Abstract
Proper management and evaluation of environmental effects for coastal groundwater aquifers require accurate estimation of salt and fresh water movement. For this we compare two numerical methods to study saltwater intrusion. The two numerical methods are the CIP (constrained interpolation profile) and the MOC (method of characteristics). The two numerical methods are used to solve the salt transport equation. The two methods are applied and compared to saltwater intrusion experiments for confined and unconfined aquifer case studies. It is found that for both cases, the CIP-method is superior in terms of calculation time while keeping an acceptable numerical accuracy.
