Page D-54 - The coefficient of storage of an aquifer is defined as the volume of water it releases from or takes into storage per unit surface area of the aquifer per unit change in the component of head normal to that surface. This coefficient is a dimensionless number. The coefficient of storage of a nonartesian aquifer is nearly identical with the specific yield of the aquifer.
Page D-54 - The field coefficient of permeability is defined as the rate of flow of water, in gallons per day, through a cross-sectional area of 1 square foot of the aquifer under a hydraulic gradient of 1 foot per foot at the prevailing temperature of the ground water. The coefficient of transmissibility is defined as the rate...
Page D-21 - These quadrants are designated counterclockwise by the, capital letters A, B, C, and D. All land north and east of the point of origin is in A quadrant, that north and west in B quadrant, that south and west in C quadrant, and that south and east in D quadrant. The first digit of a well number indicates the township, the second the range, and the third the section in which the well is situated. The lowercase letters a, b, c, and d after the section number indicate the well location within the section.
Page D-54 - The ability of an aquifer to transmit water is expressed by its coefficient of transmissibility, which is expressed as the rate of flow of water, at the prevailing water temperature, in gallons per day, through a vertical strip of the aquifer 1 foot wide extending the full saturated height of the aquifer under a hydraulic gradient of 100 percent.
Page D-23 - D quadrant. The first digit of a well number indicates the township, the second the range, and the third the section in which the well is situated. The lowercase letters a, b, c, and d after the section number indicate the well location within the section. The first letter denotes a particular 160-acre tract, the second the 40-acre tract, and the third the 10-acre tract.
Page C-33 - In the classification of irrigation waters, it is assumed that the water will be used under average conditions with respect to soil texture, infiltration rate. drainage, quantity of water used, climate and salt tolerance of crop.

Page A-19 - Coefficient of transmissibility, which is defined as the rate of flow of water, in gallons per day, at the prevailing temperature, through a vertical strip of the aquifer one foot wide, extending the full saturated thickness of the aquifer, under a hydraulic gradient of 100 per cent (1 foot per foot).
