soil water dynamics in the unsaturated zone-State of the art. This paper reviews the principles underlying water dynamics in the unsaturated zone and gives an overview of simulation modelling of soil water flow in the unsaturated zone. The basic relations describing kinetics of flow and governing equations of flow in the un-saturated zone are presented in a general form considering unsteady multidimensional anisotropic and nonhomogeneous flow in the presence of sinks/sources. The influence of… CONTINUE READING
