Recession flow analysis for aquifer parameter determination


Journal Article

The recession flow analysis of Brutsaert and Nieber [1977] extended by Troch et al. [1993] to estimate aquifer parameters (saturated hydraulic conductivity and mean aquifer depth) is examined by means of a numerical model. It is found to be reliable for the estimation of the catchment-scale saturated hydraulic conductivity and mean aquifer depth. Increasing the complexity of the synthetic watershed had no impact on the accuracy of the estimated parameters.
