Groundwater Problems of the Interaction of Saline and Fresh Water

  • R. A. Wooding


This paper reviews selected hydrodynamical aspects relevant to flow of saline groundwater in a non-reacting medium. Topics covered include macroscopic scales and dimensionless parameters, conditions for stable flow, problems of stably-stratified flows, stable and unstable mixing layers.
