Book Description

The purpose of this book is to broaden and improve aquifer test analysis by generating type curves for complicated aquifer and well conditions. It simplifies type curve matching with on-screen interactive techniques, and introduces a statistical semi-automatic protocol for calibrating aquifer test site models. In addition, it discusses the validity of aquifer test analysis results.
For anyone involved in aquifers and wells, this is an excellent resource for testing and analysis.
