extended Theis 2D vs. transient solution for apparent transmissivity from Neuman

Both, the extended Theis and the Neuman solution, represent an effective transient 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.
