Modeling and managing coastal aquifers

Organiser: Aristotelis Mantoglou, Technical University Athens (mantog@central.ntua.gr)

To meet the freshwater demand of coastal and island regions, coastal aquifers are often intensively pumped causing saltwater intrusion. It is important to develop appropriate simulation models which combined with optimization methodologies can assist decisions regarding wise management of coastal aquifers.
The focus of this special session is on
• Mathematical modeling of flow and seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers
• Sharp interface and variable density models and ranges of applicability
• Numerical solutions and computational aspects of coastal aquifer modeling
• System approximation with simpler models such as analytical solutions, neural networks, etc.
• Effects of spatial variability in coastal aquifers
• Inverse modeling and parameter estimation of coastal aquifers
• Coastal aquifer optimization combined with aquifer modeling
• Optimization methodologies based on linear and nonlinear programming, evolutionary algorithms, direct search methods, etc.
• Multi-objective optimization
