half width of the recharge basin (L), (Default: 10 m)

basinLength

half length of the recharge basin (L), (Default: 10 m)

infiltrationRate

recharge (infiltration) rate (L/T), (Default: 0.5 m/d)

horizConductivity

horizontal hydraulic conductivity (L/T), (Default: 10 m/d)

iniHead

initial head (height of the water table above the base of the aquifer);(L), (Default: 10)

specificYield

specific yield (Default: 0.2)

numberTimeSteps

number of time steps to be used for average aquifer thickness calculation (Default: 150)
