Description

Calculate the pumping rate at which pumping will induce infiltration from stream.

Usage

1

Arguments

d

distance from well to stream [L]

Qa

ambient groundwater inflow rate per unit length of stream [L2/T]

Details

This calculates the critical pumping rate above which induced infiltration due to groundwater pumping will occur, based on the glover model of streamflow depletion. Derived in Wilson (1993) Eq. 5.

Assumptions:

Value

A numeric of Qc, critical pumping rate above which induced infiltration due to groundwater pumping will occur [L3/T].
