A Simple method to estimate both flow time of water traveling through a path connecting two wells and the Peclet number from well-to-well tracer tests is presented. For this analysis, only the first tracer arrival time and the peak concentration time of the tracer response at an observation well are used. The method was tested using actual field data, and the results show that this method is simple, accurate, and, with only a few limitations, can provide reliable information about water flow patterns and traveling time.
