Slug Test

A slug test is a particular type of aquifer test where water is quickly added or removed from a groundwater well, and the change in hydraulic head is monitored through time, to determine the near-well aquifer characteristics. It is a method used by hydrogeologists and civil engineers to determine the transmissivity/hydraulic conductivity and storativity of the material the well is completed in.

Famous quotes containing the words test and/or slug:

    The test of a vocation is the love of the drudgery it involves.
    Logan Pearsall Smith (1865–1946)

    Adrift dissolving, bound for death;
    Though lumpish thou, a lumbering one—
    A lumbering lubbard loitering slow,
    Impingers rue thee and go down,
    Sounding thy precipice below,
    Nor stir the slimy slug that sprawls
    Along thy dead indifference of walls.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
