庆祝SWIMs(咸水入侵会议召开50)周年

Celebrando 50 anos de SWIMs (Salt Water Intrusion Meetings – Encontros sobre Intrusão Salina)

Abstract

The Salt Water Intrusion Meetings, or SWIMs, are a series of meetings that focus on seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers and other salinisation processes. 2018 marks the 50th year of the SWIM and the 25th biennial meeting. The SWIM proceedings record half a century of research progress on site characterisation, geophysical and geochemical techniques, variable-density flow, modelling, and water management. The SWIM is positioning itself to remain a viable platform for discussing the coastal aquifer management challenges of the next 50 years.

Résumé

Les conférences sur l’intrusion d’eau salée, ou SWIM pour Salt Water Intrusion Meetings, sont une série de conférences qui s’intéressent à l’intrusion de l’eau de mer dans les aquifères côtiers et aux autres processus de salinisation. 2018 marque le 50ème anniversaire du SWIM ainsi que la 25ème réunion biennale. Les comptes rendus du SWIM documentent un demi-siècle de progrès en recherche sur la caractérisation des sites, les méthodes géophysiques et géochimiques, l’écoulement à densité variable, la modélisation et la gestion de l’eau. Le SWIM est bien positionné pour former une plate-forme d’échange viable concernant les défis de la gestion des aquifères côtiers pour les 50 prochaines années.

Resumen

Las Reuniones sobre la Intrusión de Agua Salada, o SWIMs, son una serie de reuniones que se centran en la intrusión de agua de mar en los acuíferos costeros y otros procesos de salinización. El año 2018 marca el 50° año de las SWIMs y la 25 ° Reunión Bienal. Las actas de las SWIM registran medio siglo de progreso de la investigación en la caracterización de sitios, técnicas geofísicas y geoquímicas, flujo de densidad variable, modelado y gestión del agua. El SWIM se está posicionando para seguir siendo una plataforma viable para los desafíos de gestión de acuíferos costeros para los próximos 50 años.

摘要

咸水入侵会议为一系列会议,这些会议聚焦沿海含水层中的海水入侵及其它盐化过程。2018年距首次召开咸水入侵会议已有50年,并且2018年还将召开第25次两年一次的会议。咸水入侵会议论文集记录了半个世纪以来场地特征描述、地球物理和地球化学技术、可变密度水流、模拟和水管理方面的研究进展。咸水入侵会议仍将把本身定位成下一个50年应对沿海含水层管理挑战的、充满活力的平台。

Resumo

Os Encontros Sobre Intrusão Salina (Salt Water Intrusion Meetings), ou SWIMs, são uma série de encontros que focam na intrusão salina em aquíferos costeiros e outros processos de salinização. 2018 marca o 50° ano de SWIM e o 25° ano do encontro bianual. Os anais do SWIM registram meio século de progressos na pesquisa em caracterização de sites, técnicas geofísicas e geoquímicas, fluxo de densidade variável, modelagem, e gestão de recursos hídricos. O SWIM encontra-se posicionando-se para permanecer como uma plataforma viável para os desafios no gerenciamento de aquíferos costeiros nos próximos 50 anos.
