Abstract

Re-examines Bredehoeft's analysis of earthtide response of water wells. Narasimhan et al suggest that Bredehoeft's analysis is internally inconsistent, that one cannot directly estimate the specific storage, which characterizes the drained behavior of a porous medium, from earth tide response, which is an undrained phenomenon. Here it is shown that Bredehoeft's analysis is internally consistent, and that it is possible to determine the specific storage from undrained loading. -from Authors
