Surface Water-Groundwater Relations for Open Channels

by Herman Bouwer, USDA, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Planning Now for Irrigation and Drainage in the 21st Century

Abstract:

For losing channels with clean wetted perimeters (no clogging layers), the seepage rate varies essentially linearly with depth to groundwater if the groundwater is relatively shallow, but is essentially independent of depth to groundwater if the groundwater is relatively deep.
