Fresh water resources in coastal areas are under intense pressure from groundwater consuming activities, sea level rise and extreme weather events, which effectively amplify salt water intrusion (SWI) into coastal freshwater aquifers. Literature on SWI describe the effects of SWI, model SWI scenarios and explain possible SWI mitigation...
