AbstractAn analytical solution is derived to investigate the influence of leakage on tidal response in a coastal leaky confined aquifer system. The analytical solution developed here is more general than the traditional solution obtained by Ferris [1951], which can be regarded as a special case of the solution presented in this paper. This solution is based on a conceptual model under the assumption that the groundwater level in the confined aquifer fluctuates in response to sea tide while that of the overlying unconfined aquifer remains constant. This conceptual model is supported by numerous field studies by previous researchers which have demonstrated that the tidal response in an unconfined aquifer may be negligible compared to that in a confined aquifer. The leakage has a significant impact on the tidal behavior of the confined aquifer. Hypothetical studies indicate that both tidal amplitude of groundwater head in the aquifer and the distance over which the aquifer can be disturbed by the sea tide will be considerably reduced because of the existence of leakage. This analytical solution is used to investigate the tidal and piezometer data at the Chek Lap Kok airport, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, People's Republic of China. | An analytical solution is derived to investigate the influence of leakage on tidal response in a coastal leaky confined aquifer system.
