This paper reviews the basic concepts and modelling approaches of now and solute transport phenomena in groundwater modelling studies. The theme attains significance due to the adverse effects caused hy saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers due to overdraft and other aquifer stress conditions caused by the d(~velopmental actiyities. A good numher of groundwater models m"e con llcrcially availahle for use, of which commonly used models which arc capable to simulate 3 dimensional flow and transport are presented. Also, the basics of governing equations of flow and transport lIsed by the SEA WAT model are highlighted. A brief discussion on data required and steps involved in the simulation proces's arc discussed.
