Numerical solution for assumed relationship between transmissibility and head of water; curves are presented showing head of water in homogeneous aquifer as function of radial distance from well and time elapsed after water level in well is lowered to and maintained at given level; curves are suitable for predicting water levels near well and for determining hydraulic characteristics of unconfined aquifers from properly devised aquifer tests.
