Abstract : The overall objective of this project is to provide the DoD and its remediation contractors with the Hydraulic Tomography(HT) technology for delineating the spatial distribution of the K and Ss parameters in high resolution. Specific technical objectives are to: 1) demonstrate that HT is superior to conventional methods for estimating the spatial distribution of hydrogeologic properties; 2) illustrate that an HT survey can be readily conducted at DoD sites using existing networks of groundwater extraction/injection and observation wells; and 3) develop guidance for HT field implementation and compare costs associated with HT and conventional methods.
