Title: WRRCTR No. 3 Dynamic and Static Studies of Seawater Intrusion 
Author: Lau, L. Stephen
Date: 1967-02
Publisher: Water Resources Research Center, University of Hawaii at Manoa
Citation: Lau LS. 1967. Dynamic and static studies in seawater intrusion. Honolulu (HI): Water Resources Research Center, University of Hawaii at Manoa. WRRC technical report, 3.
Abstract: A theoretical equation was adapted and modified for a water-table aquifer to relate freshwater flow to the sea, geometry of the fresh water-sea water interface, and aquifer characteristics under dynamic equilibrium. Verification was obtained in laboratory experiments conducted in a hydraulic sand model. Other laboratory experiments revealed special flow patterns in the transitional zone of the freshwater-seawater interface. The extent and the vertical density gradient of the brackish water in the transitional zone were examined for their effects on modifying the conventional Ghyben-Herzberg Patio. Groundwater data collected from a deep well on Oahu, Hawaii was discussed as an illustration.
