CO}TVERTING LOGGED HEAD TO DRAWDOWN ~later level data which was logged in terms of "head" (Le. the depth of water above the transducer) may need to be converted to d:awdown (i.e. change in water level compared to that at some pe;rticular time). If the head at the time TO is HO I then the drawdown at any time compared to HO is : DD = HO - H (1 ) i.e. the drawdown at any time is found by subtracting the head at that time fr-om the head at time TO. A fall in water level is therefore calculated as a positive drawdown. "DATMAN" provides a facility to subtract a constant from a complete data set I which can be used if (1) above is revlritten as : DD - -(H - HO) = (H-HO) * -1 l'herefore the procedure to perform the conversion is to subtract HO from the entire data set, and to then multiply the set by -1. See example 4. 2 belO\~.
