Abstract
    On the gently sloping sandy runnel and ridge beach thirty holes were drilled through the unconfined aquifer. The unconfined aquifer consists of a complex of permeable and semi-permeable layers with a thickness of about 30 m. In each of the boreholes a resistivity logging was performed. The resistivity logging thus obtained provide a fairly good idea of the fresh, brackish and salt water distribution underneath the beach. Five resistivity profiles perpendicular to the shore line were drawn. At one of these profiles the hydraulic head pattern has b pen measured continuously inthe upper and the lower part of the aquifer. From these piezometers groundwater has been sampled for determining the mean anion- and kation concentrations. Based on these data a mathematical model, which describes the flow of fresh and salt water has been developed.
