Defining aquifer permeability distribution accurately over large areas is often debated in hydrogeology. The operational efforts to calculate hydraulic conductivity with classical aquifer tests are significant; however, accurate knowledge of permeability areal distribution is fundamental both from a hydrogeological and a modeling standpoint. This paper presents an empirical relationship between the transmissivity (T) and the specific capacity (SC) values obtained from experimental aquifer and well tests. All experimental values were obtained from 50 mm wells in middle Venetian plain artesian gravel aquifers. Many other authors have presented empirical relationships between T and SC, but most are related to fissured/karst aquifers, and only a few concern alluvial porous aquifers. Analysis of the T vs. SC relationship standardized residuals shows that a linear relationship produces statistically significant normal residuals compared with an exponential relationship.

Abstract

Defining aquifer permeability distribution accurately over large areas is often debated in hydrogeology. The operational efforts to calculate hydraulic conductivity with classical aquifer tests are significant; however, accurate knowledge of permeability areal distribution is fundamental both from a hydrogeological and a modeling standpoint. This paper presents an empirical relationship between the transmissivity (T) and the specific capacity (SC) values obtained from experimental aquifer and well tests. All experimental values were obtained from 50 mm wells in middle Venetian plain artesian gravel aquifers. Many other authors have presented empirical relationships between T and SC, but most are related to fissured/karst aquifers, and only a few concern alluvial porous aquifers. Analysis of the T vs. SC relationship standardized residuals shows that a linear relationship produces statistically significant normal residuals compared with an exponential relationship.
