Saltwater intrusion is a crucial issue in estuaries. The spread of salinity is described by the dispersion coefficient. A purely empirical equation which links the effective tidal average dispersion to the freshwater discharge was developed by Van der Burgh [1972]. Combining it with the salt balance equation, Savenije [1986] derived a one...

An estuary forms the transition between the ocean/sea and a river. Within its boundaries salt and fresh water mix. Fresh water intake points may be located within the reach of salt intrusion. In order to justify political and managerial decisions it is thus necessary to understand and be able to predict the process of salt intrusion in estuaries...

Estuaries have been used for settlement by humans since 5000-9000 years ago [Day et al., 2012]. The calm environment and nutrient-rich soil encouraged the development of ports and agriculture. Over-development however has put estuaries in unhealthy condition, where the water is polluted (excessive nutrient or salt intrusion problem) and natural...

Tidal wave propagation can be described analytically by a set of four implicit equations, i.e., the phase lag equation, the scaling equation, the damping equation, and the celerity equation. It is demonstrated that this system of equations has an asymptotic solution for an infinite channel, reflecting the balance between friction and channel...

Observations in estuaries indicate that an amplified tidal wave moves considerably faster than is indicated by the classical equation for wave propagation. Similarly, the celerity of propagation is lower if the tidal wave is damped. This phenomenon is clearly observed in the Schelde estuary (located in the Netherlands and Belgium) and in the...
