Abstract

A model of infiltration, subsurface lateral flow and surface runoff generation that considers the effects of anisotropy and vertical heterogeneity is developed. The flow relations are based on the kinematic approximation and account for the influence of terrain slope. The model consists of equations for the evolution of the wetting front, the growth of the perched saturation zone, and the rate of unsaturated and saturated lateral subsurface flow.
