Title: A one-dimensional model of subsurface hillslope flow

Author: Fisher, Jason C.;

Date: 1997

Source: Final Report. USDA Forest Service, Redwood Sciences Lab., Arcata, California. 64 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Abstract - A one-dimensional, finite difference model of saturated subsurface flow within a hillslope was developed. The model uses rainfall, elevation data, a hydraulic conductivity, and a storage coefficient to predict the saturated thickness in time and space. The model was tested against piezometric data collected in a swale located in the headwaters of the North Fork Caspar Creek Experimental Watershed near Fort Bragg, California. The model was limited in its ability to reproduce historical piezometric responses.

Keywords: PSW4351, Caspar Creek, watershed, subsurface hillslope flow, rainfall,
