185 pages


Deltares Select Series; Volume 15


In the dissertation for his doctorate degree at the University of Amsterdam in 2015, Delsman identifies the processes and physiographic factors controlling the spatial variability and temporal dynamics of the exfiltration of saline groundwater to surface water and hence the contribution of saline groundwater to surface water salinity. His research focuses on the coastal zone of the Netherlands, where the exfiltration of saline water is a common occurrence and presents immediate and future problems for regional freshwater availability. He also focuses on the agricultural growing season--April to October--when freshwater demand is highest, availability lowest, and salinity-related problems are consequently at their maximum.
