Black, John H., 2010: The practical reasons why slug tests including falling and rising head tests often yield the wrong value of hydraulic conductivity. Slug test results are usually treated with scepticism based on the idea that they are fundamentally unreliable. Based on decades of experience, this paper proposes that many tests yield erroneous values of hydraulic conductivity for straightforwar...

Slug tests are used to obtain an estimate of formation hydraulic conductivity (K) in a simple and efficient manner. A common application of this technique is for the estimation of the properties of low-K confining units that serve as barriers to c...

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. The depe...

A new procedure is presented for the analysis of slug tests performed in partially penetrating wells in formations of high hydraulic conductivity. This approach is a simple, spreadsheet-based implementation of existing models that can be used for...

Although widely used in wetland hydrological studies, hydraulic conductivity (K) estimates from piezometer slug tests are often of questionable validity. Frequently, this is because insufficient attention is paid to the details of the test procedu...
