Abstract

Variables necessary for constructing a quantitative model to predict the response of ground-water reservoirs to hydrologic stresses are in four classes: (a) external and internal geometry of the reservoir, (b) nature of the reservoir boundaries, (c) areal distribution of horizontal and vertical hydraulic conductivities, and (d) areal distribution of storage capability within the reservoir. In this report, the sensitivity of the Long Island ground-water reservoir's reponse to the first three of these variables was evaluated using analog models.
