Abstract

The paper describes a case study in which the new method is applied to actual field data from the Cortaro Basin in southern Arizona. The estimated transmissivities are shown to compare favorably with those obtained earlier for the same basin by an ad hoc trial-and-error procedure. Both sets of transmissivity values have been used successfully in conjunction with a mixed explicit-implicit finite element model to reproduce 25 years of water level variations. The finite element model has revealed some important features of the local hydrogeological regime.
