In the framework of various studies to characterize the aquifer of the groundwater experimental field near Montalto Uffugo, Italy, the present work estimates the hydraulic conductivity and its spatial distribution of unconsolidated deposits that underlay the area, by applying the geostatistical technique of kriging with external drift to electrical-resistivity and hydraulic-conductivity data. The reliability of the estimation method was tested by implementing a model, based on the method of cells, that simulates groundwater flow, with the estimated values of hydraulic conductivity. The results obtained indicate that the estimation method used has an acceptable degree of reliability.

Abstract

In the framework of various studies to characterize the aquifer of the groundwater experimental field near Montalto Uffugo, Italy, the present work estimates the hydraulic conductivity and its spatial distribution of unconsolidated deposits that underlay the area, by applying the geostatistical technique of kriging with external drift to electrical-resistivity and hydraulic-conductivity data. The reliability of the estimation method was tested by implementing a model, based on the method of cells, that simulates groundwater flow, with the estimated values of hydraulic conductivity. The results obtained indicate that the estimation method used has an acceptable degree of reliability.
