|Title:||REVIEW OF RELATIONS BETWEEN HYDRAULIC AND GEO-ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF AQUIFERS|
|Authors:||Shah, Prem Bahadur|
|Abstract:||The importance of the role of groundwater as an uncontaminated water resource has drawn the attraction and endevour of a number of workers. As a result, many studies have been made to evaluate the acruifer characteristics under different geological situations and conditions using various known methods • Accordingly, a review of the relationships which have been established between hyc1raulic and geoelectri-cal nronerties of aquifers seems to be essential. Of all the geophysical methods, the surface and subsurface resistivity measurements are found to be most useful for Qroundwater exploration. Taking into account the properties and. parameters of hydraulic and geoelectrical flow, and the works of various researchers in this context, both direct and inverse relationships between aquifer formation factor and aquifer hydraulic conductivity, aquifer resistivity and hydraulic conductivity, and aquifer transverse resistance/ longitudinal conductance and transmissivity can exist. The type of resistivity to be used in the correlations will depend on the position of the aquifer in relation to the nonproducing strata and the properties of these layers. Most of the hydraulic parameters are, generally, determined either from laboratory, or field pumping-test measurements depending uton their extensive applicability.|
