The results of laboratory measurements of various hydrological and physical properties of the Chalk of Lincolnshire and Humberside are presented. The measured parameters include density, porosity, hydraulic conductivity and formation factor. The equations governing their inter-relationships have been determined. Examination of the manner in which these properties vary with stratigraphic level shows that porosity increases upwards from the stratigraphic base of the Chalk while density and formation factor decrease.
