What is the difference between Aquiclude and Aquifuge?
Please answer from Hydrogeological prospective
It is my understanding they are the same thing. Not completely sure but that's the way I read it.
Thank you Erin
Actually confusions arises when you study Engineering Hydrogeology by Fetter. In article 3.7 paragraph 4 he writes "Confining layers are sometimes subdivided into aquitards, aquicludes and aquifuges." And in the coming lines he described the aquitards and aquifuges but probably missed the aquicludes. As per my search through internet and wikipedia these are the same still I am not quite sure about that.
Anyhow thanks for taking your time.
i think its not too late...
A saturated but relatively impermeable material that dosen't yield appreciable quantities of water to wells..e.g clay material.
A relatively impermeable formation neither containing nor transmitting water. e.g solid granite material
An Aquiclude is a geological formation that can store water but does not transmit groundwater. For example clays and shale. Whereas an Aquifuge does not store and does not transmit water, an example is a granite without fractures or joints.
