Influence of Land Reclamation on Fresh Groundwater Lenses in Oceanic Islands: Laboratory and Numerical Validation

Abstract Fresh groundwater lenses in tropic oceanic islands are important freshwater resources for local inhabitants and ecosystems. These reef-carbonate islands typically have a dual-aquifer structure, with poorly consolidated Holocene sediments deposited unconformably on Pleistocene limestone reef deposits. Land reclamation has been carried out on the reef flats or shallow water areas in coral islands, a […]
