  • 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 one- or 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… CONTINUE READING
