Inappropriate procedures in one or more phases of a slug test can provide hydraulic conductivity estimates of dubious quality or result in considerable error. This book remedies this problem by answering virtually every question regarding the design, performance, and analysis of slug tests. This is the first book to provide detailed information on this commonly used in situ hydrogeological estimation method.-- Flow charts make it easy to select analysis methods most appropriate for particular applications-- Methods are illustrated using field examples, demonstrating how the reader should use information in analyzing field data-- Major results are summarized in each chapter in the form of practical guidelines that allow readers to easily grasp the key points of that chapter-- Mathematical models underlying all major techniques are presented, providing a thorough understanding of the analysis methods-- Step-by-step descriptions of analysis methods help readers apply and understand techniques

Industry Reviews

"Excellent...a significant milestone in slug test technology and, for that matter, groundwater hydrology." Herman Bouwer, USDA Water Conservation Laboratory ...the author has achieved his goal of providing a text to which a field investigator can refer for answers to questions concerning the design and analysis of slug test data. I can therefore commend this work to all groundwater practitioners and students with an interest in the design and performance of slug tests." -Joseph F. Botha, Institute for Groundwater Studies, University of the Free State Orange, Bloemfontein, South Africa
