Study of seepage from leveed rivers into adjoining agricultural lands; flow nets in idealized cross sections were determined by electric analogy model; boundaries represented channel bed and bank, levee base, lower impermeable stratum, and water table in adjoining drained agricultural land; variables included 2 layers of different permeabilities and anisotropies, layer arrangements and thicknesses, channel depth and width, levee base width, and water table slope. (28 refs.)
