Inversion of hydraulic conductivity from Induced Polarisation, Part A: methodology and verification

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

The estimation of hydraulic conductivity (K) from geophysical measurements is a key research topic in hydrogeophysics. In the laboratory, the Induced Polarisation (IP) method has a long story of successful K estimation, with two main approaches: i) the approach based on the link between K and imaginary conductivity σ" and ii) the approach based on the link between K and relaxation time τ. In this work, we study more in detail the estimation of hydraulic conductivity from TDIP data from the inversion point of view, re-parameterising the model space directly in terms of hydraulic properties, using both σ" and τ approaches for defining model parameters. We tested parameter correlations with the Markov chain Monte Carlo method, and performed linearized 2D inversions of synthetic data on an aquifer analog. Furthermore, we evaluated the quality of K estimation on borehole field data, against K estimates from grain …
