I've an array of Hydraulic conductivity values from 1 10-5 m/s to 1 10-2 m/s, but the question is not strictly concerned with the conductivity. I want to calculate the mean value.

The mean is 1.34 10-3 m/s. I've read somewhere -but I can't get the reference- that it's better to calculate the mean of the log values. The mean of the log values is 2.5 10-4 m/s. Any suggestions about the correctness of the process?
