aquifer test methods, yielding transmissivity of T = 0.5 to 1.2 � 10 � 2 m 2 /s and bulk permeability of k = 0.7 to 2 � 10 � 12 m 2 in the upper 300 m of basement. Storativity (a parameter that includes fluid and aquifer compressibilities, porosity, and layer thickness) is S = 1 to 3 � 10 � 3 , corresponding to a crustal aquifer (matrix) compressibility of bm = 3 to 9 � 10 � 10 Pa � 1 . The inferred basement permeability is consistent with, but at the low end of, permeabilities calculated from… CONTINUE READING
