Two-layer aquifer system
consists of isotropic aquifer over- or underlain by
contains the pumping well;
aquifers occur on top (overlying) or bottom (underlying) of the
aquifer system, the overlying aquifer being confined or
aquifer system is of infinite lateral extent;
üpumping well is
fully penetrating located in the main aquifer;
calculated at any distance from the pumping well in the main
aquifer, and for Moench’s solutions – in aquitards also;
aquitards is vertical;
aquitards is included.
options are considered:
aquifer system is over- or underlain by aquifer with constant water
aquifer system is over- and underlain by aquicludes
aquitard in the top (or in the bottom) of the aquifer system is of
infinite thickness (f).
Conceptual schemes of leaky aquifer system (two-layer aquifer
system) with account for storage of the aquitard.
