Equations describing the advance of water on borders and furrows during surface irrigation have been developed. These equations yield good results as shown by comparisons with field data. Empirical equations of water surface profiles on the soil surface and water distribution profiles in the soil have been suggested and proven practical. Methods for the computation of surface storage and for the evaluation of the empirical exponent of the advance function have been formulated.
