Permeability estimation from VES data in Tehran plain


Institute of Geophysics, University of Tehran, P.O. Box 14155-6466, Tehran, Iran


Hydraulic parameters are needed to characterize the Tehran plain aquifer. Determination of these parameters by pumping test is expensive and laborious. In order to estimate aquifer permeability and transmissibility, the resistivity of the aquifer and its water content are needed. In this research fourteen pumping test experiments were considered for analysis. The relationship between hydraulic parameters and formation factor, normalised resistivity and normalised transverse electrical resistance of the aquifer are linear.
