[1] Hydrologists routinely analyze pumping test data using conventional interpretation methods that are based on the assumption of homogeneity and that, consequently, yield single estimates of representative flow parameters. However, natural subsurface formations are intrinsically heterogeneous, and hence, the flow parameters influencing the drawdown vary as the cone of depression expands in time. In this paper a novel procedure for the analysis of pumping tests in heterogeneous confined… CONTINUE READING
