The Influence of Syndepositional Macropores on the Hydraulic Integrity of Thick Alluvial Clay Aquitards

Timms, W.A.; Acworth, R.I.; Crane, Richard A.; Arns, Christoph; Arns, Ji-Youn; McGeeney, Dayne E.; Rau, G.C.; Cuthbert, Mark O.


Clay‐rich deposits are commonly assumed to be aquitards which act as natural hydraulic barriers due to their low hydraulic connectivity. Postdepositional weathering processes are known to increase the permeability of aquitards in the near surface but not impact on deeper parts of relatively thick formations. However, syndepositional processes affecting the hydraulic properties of aquitards have previously received little attention in the literature. Here, we analyze a 31 m deep sediment core...[Show more]
