Abstract
Conservative and sorptive tracer experiments were conducted in a highly heterogeneous (slnK2 = 1.79) and anisotropic (¿H/¿V = 3.52) three-dimensional test aquifer under well-controlled laboratory conditions to evaluate the effective conductivity and temporal moments predicted by stochastic theories. The spatial distribution of lnK in the test aquifer conformed to a statistically homogeneous system, thus allowing evaluation of results from stochastic theories for stationary random fields.
