Analytical solutions for the upconing of an abrupt salt-water/fresh-water interface beneath a pumping well and for the concentration profile across a moving interface are developed for two types of upconing problems. The first considers the position of the interface and the salinity of the pumped water for a specified pumping rate. The second type of problem addresses the pumping schedules to prevent salinization of a well or to reach a predetermined salinity in the pumped water. An interactive Fortran computer code has been developed to obtain solutions to both types of problems. The user is provided with options to modify the definition of a given problem, and, therefore, can gain some insight into the effects of geometry and physical properties on the rate and extent of upconing and the salinization of a well.
