The course will provide participants with (1) principles and procedures of variable density groundwater flow and coupled solute transport, (2) salinisation of groundwater systems and fresh-saline groundwater flow phenomena in the coastal zone, (3) monitoring techniques for fresh-brackish-saline water systems and (4) modelling experiences through hands-on training in computer workshops. On completion of this course the participants are able to understand, quantify and monitor groundwater flow processes in the coastal zone and to construct some (relatively simple) models on variable density groundwater flow and coupled salt transport. A fi eld visit to the south-western part of the Netherlands will provide participants some field experiences in handling monitoring techniques to understand fresh-saline groundwater systems.
