Abstract: Indoor sandbox experiments and the responding numerical simulations have been carried out. The results show that, the longer time saltwater intrusion, the more differences between saltwater level and freshwater level, lower velocity of the saltwater moving. From the transport rates of saltwater-freshwater interface, it could be seen that, the smaller differences between saltwater level and freshwater level, the earlier equilibrium state reach. Moving rates are different ascribe to the different concentration of saltwater, and the differences of moving rates becoming smaller over time. Impact of saltwater concentration on moving rate becoming smaller over time. Numerical simulation results show that, the established models could simulate the sandbox under different saltwater concentrations. The established models could be used to study the saltwater intrusion processes.
