# Hydrology - Depression cone VS transmissivity

My question concerns the depression cone of a pumping well in a confined aquifer: Say the transmissivity of the aquifer is 1200 m^2/day how will the cone change if the transmissivity is 600 m^2/day? All the aquifers parameters stay constant in both scenarios and so is the pumping rate (say- 300 cm/hr).

The main interest is what happens to the radius of influence (where there will be no change in head from the aquifers regional head)? and also what happens to the head at the well it self?

Thanks, Asher

• If you are interested in the head at the well, then you need to consider well-loss in addition to the aquifer response. – haresfur Aug 3 '17 at 0:32

$$s = \frac{Q}{4T\pi}\int_u^\infty \frac{e^{-y}}y dy$$ and $$u = \frac{r^{2}s}{4Tt}$$ Where s is drawdown, r is radius from well, t is time, T is transmissivity, Q is pumping rate, and u is the well function.
