Week 4: High K slug tests
We will use slug tests from the deeper (semi-confined) aquifer to estimate K. This interval has high hydraulic conductivity, is (semi)confined, and gives an oscillatory response to slug test stress.

Data sets: slug tests from the CSUS wellfield
Excel files from the deeper water bearing interval often show an under-damped (oscillatory) response. Two files are provided, and each file may have more than one slug test.
Estimate hydraulic conductivity (K) in the deeper water bearing interval. Include a methods section with appropriate references, results and discussion. Use thesis format.
