Description AIRSLUG carries out the analysis of air pressurized slug tests which offer an efficient means of estimating the transmissivity (T) and storativity (S) of aquifers. Air pressurized slug tests are conducted by pressurizing the air in the casing above the column of water in a well, monitoring the declining water level and then releasing the air pressure and monitoring the rising water level. The total time to conduct the test can be reduced if the pressurized part of the test is terminated prior to achieving the new equilibrium water level. This is referred to as a prematurely terminated air-pressurized slug test. Type curves generated from the solution of Shapiro and Greene (1995) can be used to estimate T and S from the rising water level data. The program is used to generate the type curves from the solution of Shapiro and Greene (1995).
