The use of slug tests to describe vertical variations in hydraulic conductivity

, : The use of slug tests to describe vertical variations in hydraulic conductivity. Journal of Hydrology Amsterdam 156(1/4): 137-162

A cylindrical-coordinate, 3-D, finite-difference model was used to assess the potential of multilevel slug tests to provide information about vertical variations in hydraulic conductivity under conditions commonly faced in field settings.
