Description

The water table recharge: the response unit

Usage

1
unitResponse(t, d = 1, D = 1, H = d, m = 100)

Arguments

t

time coordinate

d

depth of unsaturated zone along the slope-normal direction

D

soil water diffusivity

H

soil depth

m

maximum limit of summary truncation. Default is 100.

Note

This function calcletes the water-table recharge rate in a hillslope assuming:

1. Richards' Equation is linearized and reduced to the form of heat equation;

2. The diffusion water-table rate is connectedwith soil pressure head according with eq. 13 (Cordano and Rigon, 2008);
