Estimation of unconfined aquifer hydraulic properties using gravity and drawdown data
An unconfined aquifer test using temporal gravity measurements was conducted in shallow alluvium near Fort Collins, Colorado on September 26-27, 2009. Drawdown was recorded in four monitoring wells at distances of 6.34, 15.4, 30.7, and 60.2 m from the pumping well. Continuous gravity measurements were recorded with a Scintrex® CG-5 gravimeter near the closest well, at 6.3 m, over several multi-hour intervals during the 27 hour pumping test. Type-curve matching of the drawdown data performed assuming Neuman's solution yields transmissivity T, specific yield Sy, and elastic component of storativity ...
