Description

Streamflow depletion in partially penetrating stream with semipervious streambed.

Usage

1
hantush(t, d, S, Kh, b, Kriv, briv, prec = 80)

Arguments

t

times you want output for [T]

d

distance from well to stream [L]

S

aquifer storage coefficient (specific yield if unconfined; storativity if confined)

Kh

aquifer horizontal hydraulic conductivity [L/T]

b

aquifer saturated thickness [L]

Kriv

streambed semipervious layer hydraulic conductivity [L/T]

briv

streambed semipervious layer thickness [L]

prec

precision for mpfr package for storing huge numbers; 80 seems to generally work but tweak this if you get weird results.

Details

This function is described in Hantush (1965). As the leakance term (b*Kh/Kriv) approaches 0 this is equivalent to glover. It contains numerous assumptions:

Value

A numeric of Qf, streamflow depletion as fraction of pumping rate [-]. If the pumping rate of the well (Qw; [L3/T]) is known, you can calculate volumetric streamflow depletion [L3/T] as Qf*Qw
