SWIM2020 — Technical sessions

Monitoring salt water intrusion.

Especially, real-time monitoring used for management.

Using geophysics to define fresh and saline groundwater

Especially, the evolving use of electromagnetic (EM) techniques and electrical resistivity tomography (ERT).

Remote sensing

Especially, use of satellite data.

Geochemical characterization of salt water intrusion

Especially, isotope studies.

Geologic investigations and modeling

Especially, integration of geologic and transport models.

Submarine groundwater discharge

Especially, the transport and biogeochemistry of nutrients.

Modeling salt water intrusion

Especially, the integrated or iterative use of different simulation models.

Managed aquifer recharge in saline environments

Societal impacts of salt water intrusion

In particular, the evolving role of citizen science, and new ways of monitoring and managing impacts.

Future threats to freshwater availability on island nations

For example, rising sea levels, drought, changing recharge patterns, pollution, and population growth.

Non-coastal salt water intrusion problems

Transboundary management of salt water intrusion
