7 pagesDate: December 9, 2020


The Groundwater is major source for the people who works in different parts of works like irrigation, Domestic & Industrial parts, etc. So specially in coastal regions, there are some effects on the Groundwater(GW) due to sea water intrusion. Now a days, SWI is major environmental issue all over the world. These salinity concentration in groundwater may harmful for plants and animal that use it. Present study aims to analyses the Previous Literatures published by different authors with the. Different methods can be used to study how much effects should be done on the ground water by the nearer Sea water course. There are many reasons of SWI, but major factor is increasing the rate of pumping water from groundwater and decreasing rate of groundwater recharge. The aquifer zone in the region are essential contributor sources of drinking water and irrigation water for agriculture needs. For the study GW sample should be collected from the different parts in the region so the we will check that Sea water effects in how many areas from cost line and will gives the exact picture of sea water intrusion in coastal aquifer. Numerical model is used for the creating, running and processing of based model. There are some models available for GW modelling like MODFLOW, MT3DMS, FEFLOW, SEAWAT, SUTRA, FloPy etc. These all are a modular finite difference flow model to solve Groundwater flow equations and detailing of Ground water.  After literature study it is concludes that, Numerical model gives more clear pictorial view of model rather than other methods of study. It is easy to apply and versatile, also it can be adopted to the specific hydrological setting of the area of interest.
