Aquifer Properties - Feature Description

Definition: A measured or calculated physical or hydraulic property of an aquifer such as hydraulic conductivity, Transmissivity, Storativity, porosity, effective porosity, Specific Yield (drainable porosity) and Retention (non-drainable porosity), Specific Capacity (it is well parameter), etc. usually measured at a well or series of wells (based on Heath 1983, Freeze & Cherry 1979, Fetter 2001) (it can be also measured in laboratory on base of aquifer samples)

  • Hydraulic Conductivity (K)
  • Storage Coefficient (S)
  • Specific Storage Coefficient (Ss)
  • Porosity (n)
  • Effective Porosity
  • Retention
  • Storativity
  • Specific Yield
