Correcting drawdown: The Cooper-Jacob method

Here we demonstrate the correction established by Cooper and Jacob in 1946. This method corrects drawdown data for the reduction in saturated thickness resulting from groundwater withdrawal by a pumping well and thereby enables pumping tests in an unconfined aquifer to be interpreted by methods for confined aquifers.
