Flow variation with depth in the East Yorkshire Chalk aquifer

Evening Lecture

Flow variation with depth in the East Yorkshire Chalk aquifer

Presenter – Prodeo Yao Agbotui, University of Leeds

In this study, an attempt is made to characterise flow zones in the unconfined chalk aquifer of East Yorkshire, which is the northernmost part of the Cretaceous Chalk outcrop in England. One of the methods used for the study is the use of the open-well dilution method which identifies inflow, outflow, crossflow zones and direction and rate of flow in wells under ambient conditions. The results of the flow zone characterisation in combination with stratigraphic information on the aquifer allows the determination of the development of bedding-controlled features such as solutionally-enhanced fractures or conduits. The results have implications for catchment management because it will inform a refinement and improvement of the regulatory body groundwater model for assessment, evaluation and protection of groundwater resource. The method and techniques used can be applicable for characterising fractured aquifers in other jurisdictions.
