Ozaki, Yusuke ; Kohashi, Akio; Onoe, Hironori ; Yamamoto, Shinya*; Masumoto, Kiyoshi*

The objective of this study is verification of feasibility to estimate hydraulic conductivity with inversion method of water head data in fault zone. Hydraulic conductivity in a fault zone is focused on as a target of inversion because the fault would significantly affect a water head field. A series of numerical test with synthetic model is performed under the condition that the number of fault to estimate hydraulic conductivity and the degree of freedom of hydraulic conductivity distribution in a fault zone is different. The information of hydraulic conductivity outside the faults and location of fault is given to the inversion a priori. Our inversion results shows that the accuracy of estimation is improved by constrain to the number of fault to estimate the hydraulic conductivity and freedom of hydraulic conductivity distribution in a fault. In addition, the number of fault to estimate the hydraulic conductivity should be limited for the certain estimation of hydraulic conductivity in all faults.
