extended Thiem 2D vs. steady solution for apparent transmissivity from Neuman

Both, the extended Thiem and the Neuman solution, represent an effective steady drawdown in a heterogeneous aquifer. In both cases the heterogeneity is represented by two point statistics, characterized by mean, variance and length scale of the log transmissivity field. Therefore these approaches should lead to similar results.
