Abstract

The purpose of this project is to assess the accuracy of a simplified computer modeling approach to coastal fresh/salt water interface groundwater flow. A number of test cases will be run to compare the results of the sophisticated USGS computer program SEAWAT with those of the program AnAqSim (analytic aquifer simulator), written by Dr. Charles Fitts. In order to reduce input complexity and model processing time, AnAqSim uses several simplifying assumptions. The analysis will lead to guidance regarding the range of conditions where the simplified approach is applicable, and the nature of the errors that may be introduced.
