Abstract/Description or Keywords In coastal aquifers, heterogeneity introduces complexity to the configuration of the saltwater wedge and to chemical transport in the vicinity of the freshwater-saltwater interfaces. Therefore, predicting the impact of stresses to the aquifer, including freshwater withdrawals and climate change, is not straightforward. The Gulf Islands in southwestern BC provide an excellent study site for investigating the hydrogeology of heterogeneous coastal / island aquifers
