soil conditions
« on: October 08, 2019, 08:36:38 pm »
Hi everyone,

I am having a problem witm my model... Despite have defined the characteristics of the soil, it seems that it is not acting and discharge peaks are observed only when its reains. In addition the infiltraton porcentage is very high. Can you guys help me?


Thanks

Hi Diana,
Don't know which UZ method you are applying (2-Layer/Gravity/Richards) but maybe the UZ Saturated hydraulic conductivity has high values resulting in quick response to groundwater recharge/river discharge. You could try reducing it (and maybe the SZ hydraulic conductivity too) in order to reduce the infiltration/recharge and get a slower discharge response.
Hope this helps.
