Hydrogeology 101: Theis Method

GroundwaterU Video Summary

This video is one of several educational videos of hydrogeology produced by Geosearch International. The video presents the Theis (1935) non-steady-state method of pumping test analysis in confined aquifers. It shows how the Theis curve fitting method was used in the past to calculate Transmissivity and Storativity, and how a dynamic Excel spreadsheet can instead be used to determine these values based on real water level measurements. A link to the downloadable Excel spreadsheet is also provided.
