AbstractHydraulic tomography has been tested at the field scale, lab scale and in synthetic experiments. Recently Illman and Berg have conducted studies at the lab scale. Using their data hydraulic tomography can be compared to homogeneous anisotropic solutions using one pumping well or multiple pumping wells. It has been found that hydraulic tomography out performs homogenous methods at predicting hydraulic head for validation pumping experiments. Also it has been shown in this study that homogenous anisotropic tests exhibit scenario dependent behavior. Additional tests performed to further validate the conclusions made in this experiment include spatial moment analysis, response surface analysis, and synthetic hydraulic tomography and show consistent results providing additional validation of these findings. Additional study examining the principle of reciprocity has proven inconclusive.
