One-, two-, and three-dimensional root water uptake functions for transient modeling

  title={One-, two-, and three-dimensional root water uptake functions for transient modeling},
  author={Jasper A. Vrugt and Mark T. van Wijk and Jan W. Hopmans},
Although solutions of multidimensional transient water flow can be obtained by numerical modeling, their application may be limited as root water uptake is generally considered to be oneor two-dimensional only. This is especially the case for trees. The first objective of this paper is to test the suitability of a three-dimensional root water uptake model for the simultaneous simulation of transient soil water flow around an almond tree. The soil hydraulic and root water uptake parameters were… CONTINUE READING
