• The impact of afforestation/deforestation on groundwater recharge can be predicted by using one-dimensional soil-vegetation water flow models based on Richards’ equation. However simulations depend upon parameters that are not easily measurable. • Pollacco et al. (2008) showed that the hydraulic parameters can be determined, if the vegetation parameters are known, by fitting simulated time series of soil moisture profiles to those measured in situ. This paper presents a case study to… CONTINUE READING
