Abstract A natural-gradient tracer test was conducted in which the transport of bromide, a nonreactive tracer, was monitored in a sand and gravel aqifer for two years. From analyses of spatial moments of the distribution of bromide at 16 times during the test, a dispersivity tensor was calculated for the field transport experiment. As a complementary effort, detailed investigations of the variability of K in the aquifer were made at the tracer-test site, and the stochastic transport equations developed by Gelhar and Axness (1983) were used in conjunction with the statistical analysis of the K data to estimate macrodispersion for the aquifer. Estimates of macrodispersivity based on the statistical analysis of the K distribution agreed well with the macrodispersivity calculated from the tracer test. Two methods of measuring K were also evaluated: permeameter analyses of cores and flowmeter tests in wells. Geostatistical analyses of these data yielded estimates of the mean, variance, and correlations scales for the K distribution in the aquifer.
