restrict communication to the atmosphere. As a result, gas pressures in the vadose zone will change more slowly Barometric pressure fluctuations may influence measured water and to a lesser extent than barometric pressure. Conlevels in wells where thick vadose zones or low permeability materials versely, gas pressure in an unsealed well will equilibrate overlie unconfined aquifers. Here, we present a well completion method designed to reduce the effects of barometric pressure fluctuaalmost… CONTINUE READING
