      KSTAT Standards Committee

      Purpose: To develop nonmandatory standard guidelines and/or standard practice document(s) for statistical, spatial estimation and/or by spatial averaging of hydraulic conductivity using geostatistical theory. The KSTAT Committee products will advance the practice of civil engineering and benefit the public at large by (a) providing an optimized method with which to quantify the inherent statistical variability of hydraulic conductivity; (b) facilitating the probabilistic analysis of groundwater flow and other dependent phenomena, such as contaminant transport, by providing a robust statistical model for hydraulic conductivity; (c) providing a robust method to fit hydraulic conductivity that can be used in the parameterization of numerical models with which to simulate the behavior of groundwater phenomena, and, therefore, improve our understanding and management of aquifer systems; and (d) providing a succinct method for the statistical spatial estimation and spatial averaging of hydraulic conductivity for use in the analysis, simulation, and assessment of groundwater systems.
