Aquifer Characterization at UT Knoxville

University of Tennessee at Knoxville has a hydrogeology research field site in an alluvial aquifer on the Tennessee River. The site was developed by Larry McKay, Ed Perfect and their colleagues at the UT. We spend a day at the field site learning about aquifer characterization techniques from Larry McKay and vadose zone techniques from Ed Perfect.

University of Tennessee Field Site for hydrogeology where we did hydraulic well tests and vadose zone tests



We start the day with Larry McKay explaining the stratigraphy


Discussing the core

Larry McKay explaining procedures for conducting pumping test

Getting ready for the test

Installing the pump

Recording drawdown in the piezometers

Ed Perfect showed us some vadose zone techniques before we got started with the pumping test
