A model is presented that can simulate infiltration from rainstorms on areas exhibiting random variation in saturated hydraulic conductivity KS. Heterogeneity in the capillary drive (or length scale) parameter G can be treated as well. The method is based on a point infiltration model that includes the Green-Ampt or Smith-Parlange infiltration functions. The runoff area is characterized as an ensemble of infiltrating points or flow path strips that provides runoff to a receiving channel. The… CONTINUE READING
