Abstract

The Theis equation models the drawdown in an confined aquifer and may be used to analyze the results of pump tests. A classic equation in hydrogeology, this example has been programmed into a Jupyter notebook. This educational resources is targeted at upper-level undergraduate students and is intended to supplement lectures or homework assignments on well hydraulics. The primary learning objectives are to: recognize the Theis equation in its inverse form, use iterative solving methods to match a model to data, and find the values of transmissivity and storativity determined by an aquifer test. Secondary objectives are to: refresh skills associated with scientific and programming and learn to use a Jupyter notebook. Data used in analysis is derived from Problem 4.4.6 in Todd and Mays, 2005. An introductory Jupyter Notebook on the Theis equation is also available; see link in related resources.

**Recommend opening in Jupyter Notebook format by using built-in Hydroshare resources. Requires numypy, matplotlib, and math libraries; Python 3 Scientific environment recommended.**
