Logging Hydraulic Conductivity During Injection Testing In Fractured Dolomites
U.S. Geological Survey
"A quantitative evaluation of borehole-impeller flowmeter data is used to calculate a log of apparent hydraulic conductivity. These data were obtained during water injection in two drillholes in the Pecos River Valley, New Mexico. The holes were drilled in fractured dolomites and had been tested for hydraulic conductivity by conventional inflatable packer testing. The hydraulicconductivity log is compared quantitatively with the results from packer tests and qualitatively with selected conventional logs. The hydraulic conductivities derived from packer tests are higher than those from the flowmeter."
